David Suzuki Digs My Garden

David Suzuki ran a great contest this summer to encourage Canadians to grow organic and pesticide free gardens. We live in an appartment here in Winnipeg and kept our organic garden going all summer - with some great tomatoes to show for it!

Our garden won in the Balcony category and we received this special message from David Suzuki (unfortunately we submitted our picture via flickr and my account name there is generalamazo, thus the thank you). But it's pretty cool and the whole contest had a great digital component that I will talk about more in the next day or two.

Last year, you posting our David Suzuki Digs My Garden 100% Pesticide-Free Garden Contest—Thanks!.

This year, we have an cool new twist! Would you consider letting your readers know again this year?

Check it out at

You don’t have to be a master gardener to play a starring role in this year’s David Suzuki Digs My Garden contest. You just have to be a passionate storyteller who believes pesticide-free growing is the way of the future.

We’re looking for someone to follow you this summer in video, pictures and print – from soil prep and composting, through seeding and weeding, to reaping the harvest. For inspiration, we’re sending those selected a hand-painted David Suzuki garden gnome.
