Judea Garden 10th Season Celebration

Begun in response to the recession of 2008, Judea Garden grows organic produce for members of its community with limited means. Unable to help their neighbors financially, residents gathered tools and seeds, dug the soil and grew the food to make sure no one went hungry. Now, over one hundred volunteers and supporters join together each season to grow and distribute fruits and vegetables in a garden filled, not just with plants but with a sense of community and friendship.


Photography Contest – Capturing the Beauty of Judea Garden
@Macricostas Preserve (Judea Garden)

Can the beauty of Judea Garden be captured in a photo? Photographers of all ages are invited to interpret the essence of Judea Garden in an image by entering in a photography contest. Those images will be carefully judged and first-place winners will receive gift certificates and publication of their photos. Steep Rock Association’s Judea Garden, a giving garden, has been providing fresh produce to its neighbors for ten seasons.

Photos must be taken in or of Judea Garden and submitted to the Steep Rock Association (SRA) office Monday to Friday by Friday, September 28, 2018, 4:00 PM. Winners will be announced at a special reception at the historic Camp Farmhouse located in SRA’s Macricostas Preserve (124 Christian Street) on Saturday, October 13 and remain on exhibit through Saturday, October 27.

Prints will be available for pick-up Sunday, October 28th at the site of the Exhibit from 12:00 – 3:00 PM or beginning Monday, October 29th in the Steep Rock Association Office, 2 Green Hill Rd, Washington Depot from 8:00 – 4:00.

Photographs will be accepted in four categories: Adult – Color; Adult – Black & White; 14 & Under – Color; 14 & Under – Black & White. Photographs must be ready to hang and must include a label with photographer’s name, name of piece, and category. The maximum size of entry is 16” x 20” including mat and all photographs must be matted or mounted. No loose prints will be accepted. An entry form, found here, must be completed and a digital copy of the print submitted with each admission.

When visiting Judea Garden, photographers are asked to:
• Close the garden gate securely to deter Peter Rabbit and his buddies from getting in;
• Wander on the paths but not in the garden beds; and
• Keep pets outside of the Garden to protect the growing plants and for the safety of the recipients of the produce.

Please read the terms and conditions here. 

We look forward to seeing the garden through your eyes!
