    Food Matters Manitoba invites you to participate in a summer-long competition where Manitobans are able to transform their flower gardens, front lawns, or other parts of their yard into an edible landscape.

    The Edible Landscaping Competition is designed to promote homegrown
    food, sustainable living, creative gardening, and community
    beautification. We also encourage people to donate the surplus food they
    grow to help those in need through Winnipeg Harvest

    The competition is open to all Manitoba (Canada) residents with gardens
    of all shapes and sizes. Their are five competition categories which
    include Urban, Rural, Northern, Youth, and Newbie with a grand prize
    being awarded in each one.
