This summer Main Street, in Verona, will once again showcase the gardening skills of dozens of volunteer gardeners in the Seventh Annual "Adopt-a-Barrel" flower growing competition. The Verona Community Association (VCA) has provided over 25 flower barrels lining Main Street, located in front of businesses, private homes and public spaces. Each of these barrels will be "adopted" by individuals or groups who will apply their gardening skills while competing for five prizes. Fourth and fifth place will win $50. Third place prize $100, Second place prize $200 and the grand prize will be $300.The participants will provide the plants, the tender loving care and the creative skill which they hope will impress the independent judging panel sometime in July. In the meantime, residents and visitors to Verona will have the opportunity to enjoy the floral displays all summer. Winners will be announced in August. If you are interested in adopting a barrel on Main St contact Tabitha Morton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-929-5569
