You can plant your virtual garden almost anywhere in There. If you are looking for dirt to till, there are plots of land available to cultivate at the There Community Garden. All new tenants who plant a garden during the month of May will be entered into a dice roll for one month worth of free rent in the Community Gardens. Join the There Community Gardens Club to rent a virtual garden plot.
Keep an eye out for upcoming details about the Spring Garden Decorating Contest in There during the month of May. All gardeners will receive a garden gift for participating in the decorating contest and four themed gardens will earn a special 2020 Spring Garden Contest trophy.
You don’t have to have an actual green thumb to grow a garden in the Virtual World There. Vegetation magically exists without water and thrives from round the clock artificial sunlight. Search the Auctions for the latest garden goods and plant your own virtual garden in There.

Ready for your photo challenge?!
PHOTO TASK #1 – Pose with the gang outside of your newly decorated caravan. Do a TRY IT with the Grape Stomp Prop. Make sure everyone has a barrel of grapes to stomp their frustrations out in. On the count of ‘3 everyone does the ‘JIG emote and the photographer captures the moment.
PHOTO TASK #2 – Sit down at a Cracked Game table located in the Aurora Highway Rest Stop Neighborhood. Start a round of Cracked. You can play the round if you have enough time or just let the timer run out so the little chick cracks open under pressure. Take a group photo with the cracked egg at the game table AND snap a picture of the avatar holding the little chickadee.
PHOTO TASK #3 – Make friends with the horses. The cool kids are encouraged to wear western outfits and cowboy hats. Find the best acrobat in your troupe and have them perform a ‘HANDSTAND on top of a horse. At the same time your star tumbler is upside down, the rest of your crew emotes the ‘GIDDYUP dance move. Pics or it didn’t happen!
PHOTO TASK #4 – Word on the street from the neighboring Aurora Gulch community is that there is a wild stampede of bison roaring through populated parts of the Aurora Highway. Travelers passing through camp yesterday said their donkey got spooked from the thundering sound of the bison stampede. The poor donkey ran off hee-haw’ing down the highway with three days worth of food and their last roll of toilet paper. Tell your regulators to mount up, because it’s time to let those ranching and rodeo skills shine! Capture a photo of your posse riding a stampede of bison through the middle of the caravan camp. There are several herds out roaming the Neighborhood.
Drop your own stampede of bison or have your crew ride the herds of bison that are already out on stampede in the Neighborhood.
PHOTO TASK #5 – The Aurora Highway Rest Stop bathrooms have been rated 5 stars by the Thereian Transportation Agency for the past decade. Aurora caravans and travelers can count on the rest area being clean and well stocked with the “good kind” of toilet paper. The Aurora Parks and Rec Department have been able to maintain bathroom supplies for the busy rest stop location despite mass hysteria toilet paper shortages reported on the Islands of Caldera, Kansas and Nada. This last photo challenge requires your crew to steal all of the toilet paper out of the rest stop bathrooms. Yes, you get a roll of TP and you get a roll of TP and YOU get a roll of TP! EVERYBODY GETS A ROLL OF TP! To commemorate your crew’s shenanigans, cram as many of your friends as you can into the two outhouses at the Aurora Highway Caravan Events Lot. Hold your roll of stolen toilet paper (use the Try It option) and snap a picture of the crew throwing up a ‘HOLE emote sign. Made you look! ‘rofl
