Buckethead the Garden Helper arrives to assist the Guardian of the Garden in advertising the upcoming Monster Bash to be held in the Garland Community Garden this Saturday, October 19 - 1PM to 3 PM.  We want to encourage people to have fun by participating in this community event.  Details of the event follow.

This afternoon we added a second monster to the Garland Community Garden.  We hope that you will come down and see how easy it is to build a monster.  Take a close look at both of these monsters. Then we hope you will build one yourself and bring it to the garden on Saturday to compete with others for a $100 prize.  We know there are a lot of creative folks out there in our community and we hope that you will demonstrate your talents.

The event is free but donations are welcome as this is a fundraiser event for our scholarship fund which we hope to be able to award in the spring of 2017.
