Green Club Photo Competition

Over the summer months, community volunteers helped to maintain the wonderful B.A.S.E. Daycare gardens and enjoyed harvesting fresh fruits and vegetables.

While helping, we encouraged the participating families to capture their moments in the garden, especially of any tiny visitors they encountered. Here is the best shot from the lot so far, sent in by Alessandra Governale who helped out at Cedarcrest garden, featuring a Japanese Beetle. These little guys are actually pests and not a gardener’s or a plant’s best friend! They like to feed on plant leaves, which destroys the plant’s ability to survive. Oh no! You can hang pheromone traps or just use your hands to squish them so your plants can live happily!

B.A.S.E. Daycare would still love to receive your photos of interesting creatures that live in the garden—whether it’s your schoolyard garden or your very own! Send your photos to growb.a.s.e.gardens@gmail.com!
