UMD Grow100 Contest - Don't need to be MD resident

Post  sfg4uKim on 3/11/2014, 9:50 pm

Here you go everyone! I'd LOVE to see one of our Forum members enter this.

GROW100 CHALLENGE

The University of Maryland is seeing who can grow the most food in 100 square feet! 

"OPEN to all gardeners- city, suburban, country; experienced and first-time gardeners; backyard, community, or school garden. AND you don’t have to be a Maryland resident. We have lots of examples and resources to help you. Use your imagination- the sky’s the limit."

Can you bump this again in April? Some folks may just be crawling out of the snow banks at this time. Vary temping, yes, very temping . . . I wonder how they judge the most productive? Do you weigh tomatoes, cabbages, turnips? Count them? What about leafy greens. Weigh each pickiung?

Will TRY to remember, but my SFG teaching season is starting and I get pretty busy.

Not sure how they judge, but it says you need to update via Twitter or Facebook. Maybe video/photo?

SFG sounds perfect for this. Also, if judged by weight -- pumpkins!

It looks like it's going to be "judged" by several criteria such as:


  • Maximum Production - we're looking for a garden with an impressively abundant harvest. The amount of food, crop diversity, and length of harvest are all factors that will impress us.

Judging will be performed by the HGIC staff and is not scientific. We're looking for good effort, good style, good planning, good photos and good stories.
Send updates: Once you register your garden just share three scheduled updates during the growing season using our online form. Each time you’ll send us 1 to 5 photos and a brief description of what’s been happening in your 100 sq. feet (maximum of 500 words)-  tips, successes and failures, things learned, your garden plan, a great recipe, etc. Your photos and descriptions may end up on the contest web page and social media!
