KIWI KIDS REALLY DIG GARDENING!

From the rolling hills of Wainui to the fertile soils of north Canterbury and the crisper climate of Invercargill, the country can rest easy knowing its future crops are in safe hands.

More than 130 entries were received from 45 primary schools in the eagerly contested 2018 awards, nearly doubling the number of entries received in last year’s competition.

Our young gardening superstars have been unearthed for 2018!

The Young Gardener of the Year Awards will run again next year to recognise and empower even more young growers, so stay tuned!
