Congratulations to our 2018 Garden Contest Winners! 

& a BIG thank you to everyone who submitted their garden! They were all beautiful and unique. We really enjoy being able to see what our members come up with year after year!

FIRST PLACE:

“Welcome Butterflies & Bees” -Donna Whille

About This Gardener:

Planting flowers makes me happy. My Grandmother was a huge gardener! I learned a lot about flowers from her, she was in her garden from early morning until late afternoon. I’m at Barlows at least once or twice a week in the spring and summer and fall!!! I enjoy the greenhouses all winter long too!!!

SECOND PLACE:

“Poppy’s Garden” -Dan Galvan

About This Gardener:

This space was our grandfather’s garden (Poppy).He would grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, zucchini, corn and other vegetables in this area. When he passed, we knew that we would not be able to garden the way he did but we also knew that we needed to make this space special. It was such a big part of his and my wife, Kelle’s, life for so long. My friend Jeff did the pavers, my friend Vinny and I did the pergolas and Kelle and I did the stone work and gardening. We call it Poppy’s garden and we couldn’t be happier with how it came out. *Every flower/plant you see is from Barlow’s*

THIRD PLACE:

“Urban Eden” -Michael Cornnell

About This Gardener:

I became a gardener to bring the beauty of nature to the urban environment of a rooftop terrace. I suffer from MG and gardening keeps me active and moving which often can be a challenge.

Check out the other beautiful gardens!
