Last week GTDT got a lovely phone call from Liz, one of our learners from our 2021 Gardening course.
Liz told us that following on from the gardening course she had decided to set up her own growing group where she lives and had even spoken to the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to see how she would go about registering her group with them.
Liz and her team have registered for now entered the RHS Britain in Bloom 'It's your neighbourhood' campaign, which is one of the largest horticultural campaigns in Europe with the year-round aim of creating a more beautiful Britain. Entrants compete against each other within their area and then selected communities are nominated to compete against each other in the RHS UK finals.
With the RHS due to pay them a visit sometime in June and Liz has asked us for our help getting them prepared.
It was so lovely to catch up with Liz again and to meet such a wonderful group and we are making great strides into making this site look more 'blooming' wonderful than it is already.
We'll keep you posted with more news on how they are doing soon!
