Link Housing is excited to tell you that entries for our annual tenants’ Gardening Competition will open on 1 July 2020.
Enter your garden for the chance to win a $150 gift card in the below categories or claim the title of Overall Winner and a $200 gift card!
We invite residents of all ages and abilities to show off their gardening skills and enter their best green spaces in these 3 categories:
1. Best General Garden
2. Best Herb and Vegetable
3. Best Community/Shared Garden
We welcome gardens of any size, from landscaped gardens in the backyard to smaller potted gardens on balconies, in courtyards or along the side fence of a property.
Remember, gardening does not have to cost the earth; seeds or tube stock (young plants) are cheap, and you could even ask friends or family to give you cuttings from their gardens.
The last day for entries is Friday, 2 October 2020. We will judge gardens from October to November, and tell you who won at our end of year party.
We hope you start planting as soon as possible, so your garden will look its best when the spring season comes. If your garden is already looking good, keep it tidy or plant something new.
You can email your completed form to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would still love to start a garden but not enter the competition, Link Housing supports tenants to create gardens in their community.
We work with residents and our partners, the Royal Botanic Gardens Community Greening Team and Vegepod, to create gardens at properties for residents to enjoy and maintain. Community gardens – whether you grow edibles, flowers, or both – provide a great space for tenants to relax and meet up.
We have currently paused our community garden initiative due to COVID-19, but encourage you to talk to your neighbours and if you are keen to start a garden at your property, please read our fact sheet and contact us by telephone 9412 5111 or email email@example.com.
