Secret Garden Competition

While the nationwide release of The Secret Garden has been moved to the summer,there is an exciting opportunity for young gardeners and visionaries to take part in an exclusive competition.

Imagine you have discovered the gates to a hidden, secret garden and to let us know what it looks like.

You can choose how you would like to showcase your garden. Perhaps you would like to draw or paint your design, create a collage or model, or even plant up a miniature version of it.

To enter

Download the Secret Garden entry booklet below. In here will be some inspiration for the design as well as a form to complete. Entries should be submitted on a single piece of A4 paper, along with the entry form, and emailed or posted to The Campaign for School Gardening team (details in the booklet). Entrants should think about the different elements of their garden and let us know why have they chosen them. Would they like their garden to attract wildlife with pollinator friendly plants or be a calming place to think with a gentle stream running through it? Their garden can have whatever they wish in it but just be sure to explain why.

Our very special judges will be picking their favourite garden based on the design and reasons behind it. The winner will have the chance to see their garden, or elements of it, brought to life either in their school or in their community.

The winner and runners up will also win an exclusive movie goody bag!
