School Gardeners of the Year Award

The return of the Royal Horticulture Society’s School Gardeners of the Year Award will bring with it recognition of the inspiring, green-fingered work of both pupils and school staff.

The competition returns after a three-year hiatus, with the RHS seeking to uncover innovative ways that schools have been growing before, during and since the pandemic.

The award celebrates excellence in school gardening projects and outdoor learning.

Schools across the UK are being urged to nominate pupils and staff with two award categories:

This year’s judging panel includes Frances Tophill, gardening presenter and author, Matt Willer, School Gardening Champion of the Year 2018. and George Hassall, RHS Young Ambassador and Young School Gardener of the Year 2014, as well as members of the RHS team.

To enter, schools must be registered to the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, which currently supports more than 13,000 schools in the UK.
