April 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Green Home Experts announces a contest for beginner gardeners to keep their energy and enthusiasm high throughout the summer.   Whether starting a first garden on a ½ acre plot of land, or in containers on a 10th floor, 4x6 ft. balcony, either gardener is eligible to enter and has an equal chance of winning.  

“The summer is filled with garden shows and events focused on the veteran gardener.  Most have invested years in achieving the garden of their dreams.  We want to give our new gardeners a chance to have fun and show off their efforts too.  Adding a little competition into the mix keeps the energy high.  Once they experience how much fun and relaxing gardening can be, they’ll be hooked,” commented Maria Onesto Moran, Green Home Experts owner.  

The contest will be hosted on Green Home Experts’ Pinterest site  From May through September, contestants are encouraged to pin photos of their garden as it develops over the summer.  The contestant with the greatest number of Pinterest “likes” for their garden pins on September 30th wins.  The First place winner will receive a $250 gift certificate to the Green Home Experts Eco-Garden Center.  All contestants will receive a prize commemorating their very first garden season.
