Edible Playgrounds launches online competition

Dorset Cereals Edible Playgrounds project has launched an online competition to help schools establish a fruit and vegetable growing garden in their grounds.

Dorset Cereals Edible Playgrounds project exhibited two show gardens this year at RHS Chelsea Flower Show and RHS Hampton Court 2008 to act as inspiration to parents and teachers building their own school garden.

The show gardens won Gold and Best Courtyard Garden at Chelsea and Gold and Best Show Garden at Hampton Court.

Dorset Cereals has joined now forces with the RHS Campaign for School Gardens in promoting the Edible Playgrounds project to schools.

100 schools will win a kit, worth more than £300, including everything needed to start an Edible Playground garden, including two wooden raised beds, seeds, trowels, cookery book and even an apple tree.

The competition to win the kits is free to enter, open to all UK schools and the deadline for entries is 31 October.
