The Edible and Sustainable Garden Awards programme is a partnership between the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board and the Canterbury Horticultural Society.
Entries close 20 January 2020
The awards recognise and support individuals, groups, schools, communities and businesses that grow their own food. Locals are encouraged to establish a garden by themselves or with others.
Garden assessments will be undertaken by members of the Canterbury Horticultural Society.
It would be appreciated if entrants could take high-resolution photos of their garden from planting through to harvesting for inclusion in the photo presentation at the award ceremony.

The Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board is committed to encouraging the growth of localised food production. The Board’s active and ongoing support for activities and initiatives that build strong and resilient communities is a priority.
We are also keen to support and grow our relationships with local primary schools championing the next generation to grow their own food, nurture their environment, themselves and others.
In partnership with the Canterbury Horticultural Society, the Edible and Sustainable Garden Awards programme within the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board area is a wonderful way to acknowledge and celebrate local residents, schools and communities that are passionate about their gardens and their bountiful harvests.
Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board
Canterbury Horticultural Society congratulates the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board for its innovation in creating the Edible Garden Awards. Preparing your garden, planting seeds, growing vegetables and fruit successfully in your own garden is so rewarding and enables your family and friends to eat fresh, healthy vegetables and fruit regularly. More so than before, it is important to know where our food comes from. Our gardens do this for us and help us to stay fit at the same time. We always enjoy visiting the gardens and are sure that in 2020 it will be just as enjoyable as in the past.
President, Canterbury Horticultural Society
