Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Keep Scot­land Beau­ti­ful are chal­leng­ing pupils to de­sign a gar­den which could fea­ture as part of a ma­jor dis­play at Gar­den­ing Scot­land this sum­mer.

The Pocket Gar­den Com­pe­ti­tion will see kids from across the coun­try de­sign­ing gar­dens that cel­e­brate Scot­land’s land­scape and its chang­ing cli­mate.

Schools are in­vited to sub­mit their en­tries be­fore Fe­bru­ary 8.

The win­ning schools will be cho­sen by judges from Keep Scot­land Beau­ti­ful and the Gar­den for Life Fo­rum.

Win­ning en­tries will form the main fea­ture of the‘Liv­ing Gar­den’area at Gar­den­ing Scot­land in June.

Eve Keepax, food and en­vi­ron­ment of­fi­cer at Keep Scot­land Beau­ti­ful, said: “Our an­nual One Planet Pic­nic Pocket Gar­den Com­pe­ti­tion is a prac­ti­cal and fun way for pupils to learn about food, the en­vi­ron­ment and bio­di­ver­sity - all link­ing to our chang­ing cli­mate.

“Now in its fourth year we have in­spired schools from 30 of Scot­land’s 32 local au­thor­ity ar­eas. I hope that many more young peo­ple will par­tic­i­pate this year.”
