News & Event Details
In a bid to encourage more Canadians to grow their gardens without chemical pesticides, the David Suzuki Foundation has kicked off its 3rd annual David Suzuki Digs My Garden contest –it features a garden gnome bearing a striking resemblance to a certain 73-year-old environmentalist. The Digs My Garden photo contest encourages gardeners to submit photos and stories about how and why they maintain their gardens 100% pesticide-free. Novice and non-gardeners can also sign-up to receive tips on how to grow luscious lawns and gardens ‘drug-free’. Prizes include a signed Robert Bateman print, Heritage Seeds and David Suzuki Digs My Garden T-Shirts.
