Tell us your story:

Our family discussed eating healthier & the kids suggested we start a garden, but we did not know where to start. We discovered how cheap & easy it is to create a garden without having to dig a single hole. By using recycled materials such as newspaper, milk jugs, coffee cans, & old baskets, we can put a garden where ever we want & move it, if needed to protect the plants. Doing this has helped us eat healthier, save money, & protect the environment.
If we can, anyone can grow a garden!
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your family is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
