School gardening competition

SALGA are delighted to announce that the winner of our Schools Gardening Competition 2021 was Bridlewood Primary School and Nursery, Blunsdon St Andrew. Our decision followed a visit to the three schools who submitted the most promising photographs of their gardening efforts. During these visits, Bridlewood demonstrated the highest level of pupil engagement in the project; a representative from the school came to the prize giving our annual Horticultural Show (Pinetrees Community Centre, 4 September), and was presented with the trophy.

Our 2022 Schools’ Gardening Competition is now well underway. Kings Seeds have generously donated 200 packets of seeds, which we have sent out to the 32 local schools who expressed interest. We hope these schools will send us photos of the gardening projects they undertake with the seeds, and we will visit the 3 or 4 most promising-looking school gardens to choose the overall winner.
