The Spreydon-Cashmere Edible Garden Awards 2018 programme is a partnership between the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board and the Canterbury Horticultural Society acknowledging and supporting individuals, schools and communities who are actively involved in growing their own food.
The awards congratulate and encourage existing, new, or potential gardeners in the area, working together or as individuals.
Assessments will be undertaken by members of the Canterbury Horticultural Society.
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.
