The Spreydon-Cashmere Edible Garden Awards programme is a partnership between the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board and the Canterbury Horticultural Society.
Celebrating edible gardens, the awards recognise and support individuals, groups, organisations, schools, ELCs, communities, and businesses that grow their own food.
The awards also seek to encourage locals to consider establishing a garden, either by themselves or with others.
Entries close 5pm, Monday 11 February 2019.
Garden assessments will be undertaken by members of the Canterbury Horticultural Society.
It would be appreciated if entrants could take photos of their garden throughout the summer for inclusion in the photo presentation at the award ceremony.

The Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board is delighted to partner with the Canterbury Horticultural Society in the Edible Garden Awards scheme this year for our local residents, schools, families and community groups to acknowledge their efforts to produce food on their properties and in their gardens.
This is an opportunity to recognise all types of food gardens great and small. We are particularly interested in highlighting sustainability, as the Board is committed to ensuring the bounty of eco-diversity and well-being that flows from caring for our environment.
So, whether the vegetable patch, orchard, or rain garden in your yard or your neighbour’s, is new or long established, do put in a nomination and join in with young and old gardeners across the neighbourhoods celebrating local food gardens.
Chair, Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board

We hope that many of you will enjoy taking part and helping to share knowledge about the delights of growing your own fresh foods. The pleasure and health benefits of creating your own produce from seeds to tasty harvest for your kitchen are beyond comparison in today’s world. We look forward to meeting you and visiting the food growing spaces in Spreydon-Cashmere.
