Stewart Garden, the gardening division of UK manufacturer Stewart, developed the Stewart Garden Schools campaign in 2012, with the aim to get children across the UK growing their own fruit and vegetables. After great enthusiasm from all the schools involved in the 2013 campaign, Pippa Greenwood has launched the Stewart Garden Schools campaign 2014.
Leading industry partners are showing their support for the campaign. Brother will supply the schools with GL100 Garden Label printers for the second year running. New to supporting the campaign is Sinclair, who will be supplying their compost.
Following on from the 2013 campaign Pippa Greenwood continues to support the Stewart Garden schools campaign throughout 2014 and will provide the participating schools with a variety of Pippa Greenwood seeds.
Stewart Garden Schools campaign 2014 will see the top ten schools receive prize money, rather than the top three. The winning school will receive £1,000 to be spent at their local garden centre and the nine runners up will each receive £400.
In June 2014 Stewart Garden judges will visit schools and create a shortlist of the top five. These five schools will receive a visit from the judges in June 2014. Pippa Greenwood will join the judging team to nominate the winner.
Stewart Garden Schools is open to school pupils aged 6-11 years.
If you would like to inspire young people and give your local school the opportunity to win £1,000 please nominate yourself or a school near you. You can register them by contacting: Emma De Maio on 07921 160 134 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
