Join Gardening Know How on a scavenger hunt! All you need is a camera and this handy list of scavenger hunt items to choose from. Enter as many open scavenger hunts on the list as you wish. Each scavenger hunt on the list is active and accepting submissions unless marked as ‘CLOSED’. It is at the discretion of Gardening Know How to mark a Scavenger Hunt Item as ‘Closed’ once they have received a photo that, in their judgment, best meets the criteria for that item and meets a standard of quality suitable for web publication. The list will be continually updated with new scavenger hunt items to seek, so keep checking back!
Every week we will be featuring one scavenger hunt from the list on our blog. This week’s featured scavenger hunt is for aerial roots on a christmas cactus! Read our article on christmas cactus aerial roots to get clues on what you are seeking! Once you have set your sights on a christmas cactus with aerial roots, photograph it and share it with us hash-tagged #GKHpichunt via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! If you do not participate in social media networks, you may also e-mail the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Scavenger Hunt”. All submitted photos will be featured in our Facebook ‘Scavenger Hunt Contest Submissions” photo album.
The photographer ultimately chosen in each scavenger hunt category will receive a $25 gift certificate to one of the following five seed retailers of their choice: Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company, Burpee, Johnny’s Selected Seeds, Jung Seed or Seed Savers Exchange! In addition, the chosen photos will be featured, and credited, in an upcoming article on the Gardening Know How website!
