The Blooming Lambeth Awards
There were six categories in the Blooming Lambeth awards this year. The winners are listed below. Each winner received £100, and had some beautiful photographs taken of their garden by our Incredible Edible photographer, Elaine Kramer. Those photographs will go into an exhibition to be displayed from December this year at the Garden Museum. We are also developing a mobile version that can come to your garden or event.
The awards were presented by the Mayor of Lambeth, Marcia Cameron. The community food growing award was presented in honour of the late Ivor Picardo, by Ivor’s brother Jonathan, and his former manager at Lambeth Council, Mark Howarth. It was a great opportunity for many people who knew Ivor to remember him and share stories with Jonathan.
Pictures of all of the gardens are on the Incredible Edible Lambeth Facebook site.
