Are you proud of your front garden? Are the gardens in your street bursting with colour and interest? Perhaps you have a local community gardening group who works wonders on shared areas of land. If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then Cultivation Street is definitely for you.
Founded by TV gardener and presenter David Domoney, Cultivation Street is a garden competition that recognises and rewards communities that are caring for their streets, as well as encouraging other communities to join together and inspire them to start gardening. It was originally conceived as a front garden campaign, but soon expanded to include community gardening projects, neighbourhood schemes and school gardens.
I love the principle behind this campaign; encouraging communities to build bonds, learn new skills and enhance their local area is such a great idea. It’s not all about creating beautiful gardens; it’s also a feel-good journey.
If you’re a resident with a front garden, a member of a community or neighbourhood gardening group, or a school garden representative, you can enter the competition. There are National Gardening Gift Voucher prizes in various categories worth a total £20,000, with the overall winner’s prize worth £10,000 – well worth an entry, don’t you think?
For more information and details on how to enter visit the Cultivation Street website. The closing date is 2nd August. Will you be entering?
