Join the “grow local” revolution and take part in the Metchosin Day Produce Contest. Ribbons for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places. No pre-entry needed. Just drop off specimens at Village Centre Hall between 9:30am and 11:30am.
Produce should be entered in the categories specified below. Bring a paper plate to display produce and write your name, address and tel.no. and any special info about variety, especially heritage variety.
Include age if you are a junior entry-under 12. It is so great to find as many juniors as adults entering in all categories.
