On 4th September, two weeks before the end of Term 3, the Victorian Schools Garden Award entries for 2015 closed.
This year saw another increase in entries, with 125 received from schools across Victoria.
Judging of the Awards has begun, the VSGA committee are extremely impressed with the entries submitted and the effort schools are putting into their gardens. It is clear that schools take their outdoor environment very seriously and see the benefits of integrating outdoor learning into their curriculums not only for student learning but also health and well being.
Regional Award winners will be announced around the end of October with all other categories including the Turf Victoria, Flemings Mini Orchard, State and the Kevin Heinze Perpetual Award being announced at the VSGA Presentation Day held at the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens on Thursday 26th November 2015.
