The “Games in the Garden” contest was perfect for this garden, allowing them to showcase the AAS Winners via activities in their Children’s Garden. 2022 was the 60th Anniversary of Horticulture Arts as a community demonstration garden so it was perfect timing to reflect and share the history of what the gardens have provided to the community.
During the celebration, musicians played amongst the AAS Winners while children and families participated in tic tac toe using AAS plants as game pieces. Participants used coloring books (that focused on water-wise gardening) and a scavenger hunt (that incorporated locating special and unusual trees, statues of butterflies, dragonflies, the Caretaker, and a pollinator house) to truly experience the games in the garden while enjoying and identifying AAS Winners.
“To promote new garden varieties with superior garden performance judged in impartial trials in North America.”
