6th Annual GreenThumb Garden Recognition Awards

Nominate a GreenThumb garden group or garden member for the 6th Annual GreenThumb Garden Recognition Awards taking place this winter. You can nominate GreenThumb gardens and gardeners (including your own and yourself!) for one of the awards by completing the 6th Annual GreenThumb Garden Recognition Awards Nomination Form by Wednesday, November 9, 2022. 
The nomination form is also available to download and mail in at the links below in English and Spanish

A single garden can be nominated for more than one award, but only three total nominations may be submitted. To give all groups an opportunity, previous years’ winners will not be eligible under the same category. Community gardeners from groups that have received an award in any garden group category in the past are still eligible for the individual gardener categories.
