This exciting new awards scheme, which is partnered by industry charity Perennial has been launched to ensure that the custodians of the UK's vital gardens and green spaces receive the recognition they deserve for the extraordinary job they do.
The awards which are supported by the Chartered Institute of Horticulture and The Parks Alliance, are open to entry from parks, gardens and tree management teams, many of whom have battled against the odds - whether from challenging budgets, changing climatic conditions or the growing skills shortage - to ensure that the communities they serve and future generations can continue to enjoy access to quality, life-enhancing green space.
The very best in the parks, gardens and tree management sectors will be recognised and celebrated by the Horticulture Week Custodian Awards. So whether it is an exemplary project, a brilliant piece of teamwork or a great idea that has made a real and lasting impact on your service or site this year, make sure that you and your team get the recognition you deserve by entering the awards.
Winners of the Horticulture Week Custodian Awards will be announced in June at a special reception hosted by Horticulture Week. All the winning entries will be written up in full in a special report on the awards to be published in Horticulture Week magazine as well as online at www.HorticultureWeek.co.uk, helping you to showcase your achievements, reward team effort and highlight to stakeholders the vital role you and your team play in protecting the future of our vital green spaces and facilities.
The early-bird deadline for entries to the Horticulture Week Custodian Awards is 21 April.
