The Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania's Trash to Treasure Contest will be held on Friday, April 21st in Monroeville, PA at the 2023 convention. Entry selection for District II/III will be in March which means Parkland Garden Club will need to have our own Trash to Treasure entries at our February 13, 2023 meeting. If you are new to the club and have never participated in Trash to Treasure, it is loads of fun! We bring our homemade creations to the PGC February meeting. We select one to represent us. When the entries from each club go to District II/III, they select one entry from all the clubs. That entry from District II/III will then go on to compete at the state convention on April 21-23 at the Double Tree Hotel in Monroeville, PA. The Theme of the convention will be "Thyme to Garden".
