Carton 2 Garden Spring Contest Written by Field Trip Factory, March 20th, 2018 Time is running out, but, if you are preparing your school garden for the season, you’ll want to get in on this spring contest to win 1 of 14 prizes, including a grand prize of $5000. Evergreen Packaging, who specializes in providing sustainable packaging from cups to envelopes with support from KidsGardening.org, is sponsoring the contest. School participants will need to collect and repurpose 100 or more milk or juice cartons to improve or build their school garden. This is a great hands-on opportunity for young gardeners or engineers! From garden art to irrigation systems, the cartons can be used in a variety of creative ways. And the more creative the better. Entries are due April 16, 2018. If you miss this year’s contest, keep it in mind for next year!
