BALDWIN, WI – DJ’s Fiesta Event Center was the site of the Reaping the Harvest Flower Show (and Nature Photography Contest) during Baldwin’s Chili Fest, last Saturday, September 30. The flower show gave club members the opportunity to use their creative talents in floral design and to exhibit flowers and vegetables from their gardens. 

At the show there were also informative displays about creating backyard habitat and the mighty oak tree. All entries were judged by a three-panel team and were placed. In addition to the official judging, the public voted for their favorites and a People’s Choice Award was given in the design and horticulture categories.

The Reaping the Harvest Show meets the requirements of the National Garden Club, Inc. and the Wisconsin Garden Club Federation. The judges who viewed the show rated it highly so it is in contention for a state level award also.
