RDS Allotment Awards 1 May 2012
Applications are now open for this year’s RDS Allotment Awards. Now in their third year, the awards have a total prize fund of €3,000 and strengthen the Society’s commitment to promoting bio–diversity in Ireland. The Awards aim to recognise the hard work, dedication and attention to detail that is being undertaken by those involved in allotment gardening.
The first award recognises the individual allotment gardener and is divided into two categories: Experienced and Novice Gardener. The winner in each category will receive €500 and an RDS Silver Medal. The runner–up will be awarded €300 and third place €200.
The second award recognises the work of allotment providers and is open to local authorities, allotment societies, community gardening groups and individuals who are providing allotments. The winner of this award will receive a cheque for €1,000 and an RDS Silver Medal.
Closing date for entries is Friday, June 8, 2012. To apply, simply fill in the attached form and return it to me by post or email. Please pass this on to any allotment providers or gardeners who you think might be interested in applying.
