About 10 gardeners participated in the competition last year. This year, by opening the competition to the community, the Harvest Farm managing board hopes that more scarecrows will take up residence at the community garden. Harvest Farm gardeners may place their scarecrows in their plots any time from October 1-21, while community members are invited to line their scarecrows up along the inside of the garden”s perimeter split-rail fence; signs at White Street Park, 752 White Street, will indicate where scarecrows should be placed.
Prizes from local businesses will be awarded to winners in categories such as scariest, funniest, and most creative. Judging will take place on October 22.
Scarecrows should remain at the White Street Park through November 13. After that, individuals may pick up their scarecrows. Any remaining scarecrows will be discarded after November 30.
