The Edible and Sustainable Garden Awards programme is a partnership between the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board and the Canterbury Horticultural Society.
Entries close 20 January 2020
The awards recognise and support individuals, groups, schools, communities and businesses that grow their own food. Locals are encouraged to establish a garden by themselves or with others.
Garden assessments will be undertaken by members of the Canterbury Horticultural Society.
It would be appreciated if entrants could take high-resolution photos of their garden from planting through to harvesting for inclusion in the photo presentation at the award ceremony.

The Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board is delighted to be hosting its inaugural Edible and Sustainable Garden Awards in 2020. We will partner with the Canterbury Horticultural Society to recognise all types of food gardens – great and small, new and established. We encourage your innovative use of space, resources, and sustainable practices, and hope that these awards inspire people to start a new project and learn something along the way.
This event is a way to acknowledge and celebrate local residents, schools and communities that are passionate about their gardens and their bountiful harvests.
We invite you to take part.
Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board
Canterbury Horticultural Society welcomes the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to the Edible and Sustainable Garden Awards in 2020. Preparing your garden, planting seeds, growing vegetables and fruit successfully in your own garden is so rewarding and enables your family and friends to eat fresh, healthy vegetables and fruit regularly. More so than before, it is important to know where our food comes from. Our gardens do this for us and help us to stay fit at the same time. We always enjoy visiting the gardens each year and look forward to visiting the Edible Gardens in Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton.
President, Canterbury Horticultural Society
