April is National Garden Month, and Senior Life has Spring Fever! That means it is time for another Senior Challenge. Senior Life challenges you to tell us why you or someone you know deserves to win the Garden of the Month Challenge Contest.

Tell us in 300 words or less why you think you deserve a new garden, or nominate your favorite gardener to win. Tell us how you would create your ideal garden, whether a vegetable garden, a butterfly garden, an herb garden, or simply a potted filled with petunias. Tell us how you would like to make your neighborhood a more beautiful place, and how you feel about taming the environment.

Do you have a special memory of a grandparent’s garden, or would you like to include a special grandchild in the global and yet individual art of gardening? If so, tell us! You could win one of three Gift Certificates from a local Garden Shop or Nursery. Senior Life will be awarding Gift Certificates in the amount of $25, $50, and $100 to three lucky gardeners.

Be sure to include your name, address, and telephone number with your entry, so that we can contact the winners. Next month, we will have photos of the winners, and their winning stories.

There are three ways to get your story to us:
