UK’s RHS has launched its 2016 search for School Gardeners of the Year. There are loads of prizes including £500 in gardening vouchers, tools and RHS show tickets.
There are 3 entry categories:
- RHS Young School Gardener of the Year 2016
- RHS School Gardening Team of the Year 2016
- RHS School Gardening Champion of the Year 2016
Entries close Friday 22 April 2016, and finalists will then submit a short video that demonstrates their love of gardening. Judged by a panel including celebrity horticulturist Frances Tophill who says:
“I love working with the RHS Campaign for School Gardening. Every year I meet individuals, teachers, mentors and teams who inspire me with a fresh perspective or a new idea and buckets of enthusiasm. Fitting horticulture into an already bustling school life takes dedication and perseverance, but is wonderful for all aspects of a young person’s development and it’s essential that we train and inspire the horticulturists of the future. This is a campaign I am proud to be part of and the RHS School Gardeners of the Year competition gives people the recognition they deserve for their wonderful work.”
