Here are the public voting categories for this year:
1: Ivor Picardo Award for abundant growing of edibles
Do you know a space that is full of growing veggies and/or fruit in a public facing space? Your nomination can be for a passionate individual or community group growing food from seed or seedlings.
Ivor Picardo was a champion of food growing who worked for Lambeth Council encouraging growing in public areas including estates. This award is in memory of his great work for food growing in the borough.
2. Best School Garden
We want to celebrate school gardens that are an inspiration to pupils. Does your candidate teach children about the wonder growing of food from seed or seedlings and provide them with the skills to nurture their food growing space? Do they encourage children to try the food they’ve grown and explore new tastes? Do they have a space that encourages children to engage with wildlife and play in nature?
4. Best volunteer for a community growing space
Do you know of someone who goes the extra mile for their community growing space? Someone who encourages others with their dedication and commitment? Do they share their skills and knowledge? We want to hear about these inspiring individuals.
5. Best resident-led community garden
We’re looking for resident led initiatives where communities have come together to grow together. Do you know of an excellent community growing space? This can be on an housing estate, or a pocket parklet on a street, or a street that has added planters of its own which are tended by the community.
Though you might only have a tiny space, you will be able to demonstrate that you grow a large amount of food relative to the amount of space you have.
