Blooming Lambeth Awards 2021

All the votes are in and we look forward to announcing the winners at our upcoming Blooming Lambeth Awards 2021 ceremony (date to be announced).

In the meantime, we invite you to read about each of the shortlisted nominees in the People’s Vote categories below. Click on the category to read the nominations.

Remember, there will be at least two prizes per category, with cash winnings of £75-£150 each and winning gardens will receive lots of publicity and a small framed certificate. Your vote will make a difference!

Best of luck to all entrants.

Category 4 – Most enthusiastic young gardener (under 18) – This could be a young person getting involved at home or in their neighbourhood or at their school.

Category 5 – Best volunteer for a community growing space – Young or old, we know that there are so many people giving their time to make community gardens run smoothly and effectively. Now’s your chance to show how you value them and to say ‘Thank you’ to them.

Category 7 – Best garden in bloom (public or private space but must have a public facing view – eg front garden, therapeutic garden, parklet).

Category 8 – Best space for encouraging biodiversity – for example: do the pollinators love your patch? or are you growing flowers that attract them? or do you have places for hedgehogs, beetles? or do you have a pond?
