Ban­nock­burn kids win gar­den chal­lenge

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Pupils from Ban­nock­burn High School have been suc­cess­ful in a Royal Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety’s an­nual gar­den de­sign con­test.

At an awards cer­e­mony in Ed­in­burgh this week, Ban­nock­burn and Dun­can­rig Sec­ondary School in East Kil­bride were crowned joint-win­ners of the 16-school com­pe­ti­tion.

The‘Green Plan It’chal­lenge saw 17 teams com­pete along­side in­dus­try men­tors to de­sign a new school or com­mu­nity gar­den.

More than 100 pupils, aged 12-14, worked with gar­den de­sign­ers and other in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als to draw up 3D de­signs for a green space in their com­mu­nity.

Ban­nock­burn’s de­sign for their school in­volved space for fresh fruit and veg­eta­bles, which would be used for school meals.

Liz Ste­wart, RHS devel­op­ment man­ager, Scotland added:“I’m al­ways amazed at the creative and de­tailed de­signs dreamed up by pupils af­ter just ten weeks, with many opt­ing to tackle some of to­day’s greatest chal­lenges, from food sus­tain­abil­ity to wildlife con­ser­va­tion and men­tal wellbeing.”
