Each year, Seed St. Louis hosts two contests for the school and youth programs in our network to encourage students to get outside and explore their gardens.
Sweet Potato Challenge
First Peas to the Table
Join the First Peas to the Table Contest and compete with other gardens to grow the first pea of the year! Peas are one of the earliest vegetables you can plant in the school garden and should be ready to harvest by the end of the school year. Lessons associated with peas include plant life cycles, plant adaptations, trellis engineering, and measuring!
Participating Seed St. Louis school gardens will receive free pea seeds and either an award or participation sign for their garden.
