Featured Project: Beauty and the Eats
Announcing the 9th Annual Purple People Bridge Container Planting Contest
The PPB Planting Contest includes THREE CATEGORIES:
Amateur/Bridge. In this category, amateurs (those who do not do or teach gardening for a living) will plant groups of three containers on the Bridge.
Professional/Bridge. In this category, professionals in the horticulture industry will plant groups of three containers on the Bridge.
Amateur/North. In this category, amateurs will plant one round purple container per person group on the North Approach to the Bridge on the Cincinnati side at Pete Rose Way.
This year the PPB Planting Contest theme is “Beauty & the Eats”. Each entry must feature a plant or group of plants which are edible or produce edible fruit, flowers or roots. Prizes are awarded in each category based on the evaluations of a panel of local horticultural experts and dignitaries.
All groupings are automatically irrigated from May to October. Local experts will judge the groupings in June and September. All contestants and judges are invited to the celebration and announcement of winners in October. Details of the contest are on the attached pages.
Groupings or containers are assigned on a first-come first-served basis.
