It’s autumn! Our gardens are in need of Scarecrow / Guardians! We are asking the public to participate.
We are asking families to use their imaginations to make scarecrows for our gardens. We encourage you to use recyclable items. We ask that you NOT use any paper or cardboard products as they will not hold up in the humid and rainy gardens.
We will ask our garden visitors to vote on our Scarecrow/ Guardians.
Winners will receive:
1st place – one night stay plus a one year membership
2nd place - $50 gift certificate to Café Jefferson
3rd place – one year membership

If you plan on participating please e-mail Nick Delcambre at : or call at 337-359-8525! Ask for Nick.

We would like to begin showing our “Guardians” by October 5, 2019.
Deadline for turning in scarecrows is September 30, 2019.
