Urban Landscaping Winners Announced

Friends of Midtown is pleased to announce the winners of the 3rd annual Urban Landscaping Contest. The Urban Landscaping Contest recognizes those with green thumbs who are able to do most with the least — be it in pots, patches, or private parks. There were nine participants in this year’s contest — you can check out the pictures here.

The People’s Choice Award, as determined through online voting, goes to Denise and Michael Williams, 2030 Green Street.

Our two judges determined the other awards. Joyce Hoek, of Middletown, and Lou Ann Hoffman, of Halifax, are both members of the Garden Club of Harrisburg and the Harrisburg Area Civic Garden Center. Both are also National Garden Club-accredited flower show judges. Many thanks to both of them for their help with this contest!

  • First Place: Jefferson Rougeau and Steven Creps, 1631 Green Street
  • Second Place: Denise and Michael Williams, 2030 Green Street
  • Third Place: Jeanette Townsend, 413 Boas Street

Honorable mention went to Jeremiah Underhill and Annette McKimm, of 414 Harris Street, and Karilyn Kelly-O’Keefe received special recognition for her Miss Tinkerbell miniature garden.
