100 schools sign up for Stewart Garden initiative
The aim of the competition, which was first launched in 2012, is to encourage pupils to get involved in grow-your-own. This year it challenged participating schools to show their creativity and inspiration with their Stewart Garden kits. Entries included DVDs of children using the kits, photographs, drawings, videos, scrapbooks and slideshows.

Each school received a garden kit worth over £400, containing three varieties of easy-grow vegetable seeds. Compost was donated by participating garden centres and J Arthur Bowers, and pupils received a booklet produced by Stewart Garden.

The top 10 schools, competing for a prize of £1,100 to be spent at the local garden centre, have now been chosen and visited by the judges, and once their feedback is collated and analysed, the overall winner will be announced next month. Nine runners-up will each receive £500.
