Create a crow or haybale art ...

What a great team building, family bonding or youth group exercise! Build a scarecrow or haybale art project for the Garden. This year it’s all about different community professions: policeman, fireman, doctor, lawyer, teacher, scientist - whatever profession you want to create. Make a crow/haybale art that represents what your company does, what you do, or what you aspire to do. Scarecrow installation is August 22 – September 2. Frames to build your scarecrow on are available at the Garden. All entires receive an engraved plaque with your Scarecrow or Haybale Art  name and organization.
