Gardening against the odds.....

The Conservation Foundation and the Daily Telegraph have just launched their 2011 Gardening Against the Odds awards – these awards honour those who have overcome physical and psychological difficulties to create gardens that bring joy to all - it would be great to see an Ecominds project win!
Entries can be from, or on behalf of, individual gardeners or small communities who have created a beautiful garden (of any size) or green corner that touches the lives of others. This year there will be two categories: individual gardeners and groups. The obstacles overcome may include the following:
1. Creating a garden in an unlikely or inhospitable corner – such as a derelict site or built-up area.
2. Gardening in the face of physical health problems.
3. Gardening in the face of mental or psychological health problems such as depression or grief.

To enter and find out more details of the awards see the Telegraph’s website here.
