Salvage Garden competition
Following the success of last year's competition we are pleased to announce the Salvage Garden Competition for 2012. The aim is to challenge local schools to turn unwanted waste items into wildlife-friendly garden habitats.
The Salvage Garden competition is sponsored by St Bridget Nurseries and runs until June 2012 when the winning school will be announced. The school with the best garden will receive a behind the scenes to St Bridget Nurseries for one class of pupils. The winners will also receive a plant per student to take away with them.
All entries will be photographed and displayed at Plantsmans Café at St Bridget Nurseries, Old Rydon Lane in the autumn.
What's it all about?
The competition is being organised by Paul Martin. He wants entrants to think imaginatively using as many unusual items as they can think of like the winners of last year, Ladysmith Junior School! Tammy Falloon from the school said:
“Don’t worry about how much space you have or haven’t got, it’s what you do with it that matters and it doesn’t have to be big for wildlife.”
