New for 2015

Green Streets; Better Lives;

This a National theme this year and for the next three years and London in Bloom would like to support this RHS Britain in Bloom initiative and also recognise the efforts being made to “Green” up our grey spaces, streets and high streets through the addition of plants. Adding plants to these dull and uninspiring places will we hope improves not only the quality of people’s lives that live there but also to those who practice business or visit the area as a visitor.
A special award will be given to the best example of Green Streets in the London Region.
This is only open to existing entries and must be on the judge’s route to be eligible for an award.

KNOW, SOW & GROW

Our Sow, Grow & Know Campaign is here to work with schools to encourage understanding the environment, sustainability, water conservation and growing plants, fruit and vegetables. The judging takes place in June, with the judge spending an hour at the school being shown round (usually by a member of staff and some children) on a date agreed between you, this gives the pupils a chance to show off their hard work. All schools receive a certificate and a report regardless of the level of the school, from those just starting out to those who are old hands. The judge will provide helpful advice on how to move forward. Entering our Know, Sow & Grow campaign for schools couldn't be easier, just go to the main menu, click on Downloads and click on the Know, Sow & Grow entry form. If after looking at our site you need more information give us a call on 020 8662 1021 or email us at kate@londoninbloom.co.uk
