Congratulations to the Master Gardener Association of Tippecanoe County for winning 1st Place in the All-American Selections Landscape Design Contest for Category 1 (Fewer than 10,000 visitors per year)!

First Place Winner: Master Gardeners Association of Tippecanoe Country (MGATC), Lafayette, Indiana. Building on the Pollinator Education theme, MGATC created a tagline for this year’s garden of ‘Pathways for Pollinators’ which took advantage of established garden structures like star-shaped raised beds and the pathways through those beds. A map of the garden and signage throughout clearly explained each garden area and its purpose for pollinator health. Volunteers strategically planted AAS Winners and native plants along the pathways which allowed them to educate garden visitors on the importance of native plants and annuals for a successful vegetable garden.
