Margaret River Primary School’s Kitchen Garden is running a competition of skill and (some) luck on its Facebook page this month.

Garden Specialist Terri Sharpe is the only person alive who knows how many zucchinis the school garden produced this season – but if you can guess that number, you’ll win yourself a kitchen garden prize pack to the value of $200.

Ms Sharpe said the prize pack would feature the student gardeners' pride and joy - all sourced directly from the school's outdoor oasis. 

"The pack consists of school-grown tamarillo, chili, pepino, garlic, perennial spring onion and raspberry seedlings, jars of tomato sauce and zucchini pickle made by the talented Jenine O’Brien from paddock2produce, and a variety of organic seasonal produce picked fresh from the garden available on the day," she said. 

"The only catch is you have to be able to pick up your prize pack from the school or nominate someone who can."

Ms Sharpe said if two or more  people chose the same number and won the prize, items would be shared between the winners.

"But we will do our very best to get more for both winners!"

To enter, visit the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mrpskitchengarden, like the page, find the zucchini post, enter your number in the comments section, share the post, and wait!

"And here’s a hint for Mail readers," said Ms Sharpe.

"If you scroll back over some of the older Facebook posts you may find a few clues!"

The competition closes April 1, 2019 with winner/s announced on Facebook, so get in now for your chance to win.
