Amid concerns about the pandemic, climate change, and the fragile global economy, we’ve seen an increase in people growing their own fruit, vegetables, and herbs.
We want to showcase the very best community food growing projects across Wales.
We are looking for food growing projects that have helped communities become more sustainable and resilient.
It could be a project that supplies fresh produce to local foodbanks or community kitchens. It might be a community orchard where residents are encouraged to ‘pick their own’ to boost their health and well-being. Or it could be an initiative that teaches people how to look after and harvest their own fruit and vegetables.
This category is open to anybody to apply.
Please upload two recent photos or add a video link to support your nomination.
You must either provide a video URL or photos.
A panel of experts made up of Keep Wales Tidy staff, trustees and Tidy Wales Awards sponsors will assess all nominations.
Please make sure that you have parent / guardian approval to submit a nomination if you are under 18 or if the person(s) that you are nominating are under 18. This consent should cover use of name(s), activity and any images used in the application.
