Green Fingers Galore - Vegetable Garden Competition

01 Nov 2021 9:00am - 28 Feb 2022 5:00pm

Plan your garden now! An inclusive Lincoln Envirotown event to celebrate the many keen gardeners in our community, and to promote best practices in vegetable production. Anyone in the Lincoln area can participate and there is no entry charge. Entrants purchase their own seeds etc. Judging with inspection visits will be arranged in February, to interview the entrants and view their gardens. Go to Humanitix to download the assessment criteria for entrants https://events.humanitix.com/garden-competition Only vegetable gardens will be assessed, not flower gardens, shrubs or fruit trees, unless these are integrated with the garden area. The emphasis will be on participation rather than winning. All gardens’ achievements will be celebrated. Some prizes will be awarded to gardens of special merit. An awards gathering will be held in February or early March 2022. Register with Humanitix to enter your vegetable garden.
