  • Farmers’ Market ex-staw-dinary scarecrow competition returns!

    scarecrows

    The Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market will run its annual scarecrow-making competition again this winter with the winning entries receiving a family pass to the Royal Adelaide Show.  

    To provide a little extra help for children entering the competition, the Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market will hold a workshop on Sunday 23 July, as part of its weekly Kids’ Club activities. The workshop will include handy tips and tricks on how to make an effective scarecrow. The workshop is free and will start at 10am.

    Adelaide Farmers’ Market general manager, Elaine Ratcliffe said the Kids’ Club was an important addition in making the Market a family friendly experience and teaching kids about healthy and sustainable food.

    “Our Kids’ Club activities aim to teach kids about the process of growing their own produce and encouraging them to learn about cooking and preparing food as part of a healthy lifestyle,” Elaine said.

    “The farmers’ who sell at our market often rely on traditional, hands on farming techniques and using scarecrows can be an effective way of keeping birds away from crops.  We ran the scarecrow competition for the first time in 2015 and again last year, and it was a big hit. We expect to see increased interest and entries this year.” 

    To enter the competition, children can submit entries made at the Kid’s Club workshop or families need to complete a form and bring along their homemade scarecrows to the Market by 10am on Sunday 20 August.  There are eight family passes to be won.  Entrants will have the option to take their scarecrows home or donate them to a farmer at the market.
