Awards for School Arts Competition
Thirty four schools and 200 children/young people took part in the competition.The competition asked participants to show through their art how the loss of wildlife and species extinction is linked to farming animals.The competition aimed to help young people become better-informed about the environmental crisis that we are in, by exploring the impact of what we eat and the way food is grown and how they can help to create a healthier world for us all to live in.

All schools that entered the competition will be sent a copy of Growing Green International, a living Willow Wand to plant and a selection of seeds to plant.

Many thanks to Simon Read who donated the Willow Wands and to Garden Organic’s Heritage Seed Library who donated the seeds.
