During the month of August, the National Home Gardening Club asked our Facebook fans to submit photos of children gardening for a chance to win prizes, including copies of the recent movie “Epic,” courtesy of Fox Home Entertainment. Facebook fans responded by submitting more than 100 photos of children gardening, enjoying flowers, vegetables and wildlife.
We loved looking through the submissions. What’s more fun than seeing happy kids engaged in nature?
The grand prize winner was Susanna Kelly Loe, from Ann Arbor, Michigan. She received a prize package from Fox Home Entertainment including Miracle-Gro Kids: Ready, Set, Gro Windowsill Greenhouse, Enchanted Fairy Garden Kit, Green Toys Indoor Gardening Kit, a Mini-Digger shovel, and a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack of “Epic.”
Four runners-up also received a copy of “Epic” on Blu-ray/DVD.
