Popular gardening competition Camden in Bloom open for entries

Camden Council’s popular gardening competition, Camden in Bloom, is now open for this year’s entries.

The competition celebrates the best gardens in the borough and looks to support its residents, businesses and community groups to create a greener Camden.

Entries for the competition close on Thursday 31st August, with the winners announced in September.

Councillor Adam Harrison, cabinet member for a sustainable Camden said: “We have so many wonderful green spaces and gardens in Camden, and it’s great to see so many of our residents take time to improve them.

“Through this competition we hope to recognise this work as well as encourage residents, businesses and community groups to create an even greener and more sustainable place to live.”

Camden in Bloom was first established in 1999 and has continued to grow encouraging residents to get involved with their green spaces.

Camden Garden Centre has been a sponsor of the event from the very beginning.

The centre, which is owned by The Camden Garden Centre Charitable Trust, is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

Over the last four decades, it has helped over 400 people with barriers to employment improve their long-term employment prospects.

Peter Hulatt, managing director of Camden Garden Centre said: “As a business, we are also very much part of and a supporter of the local community – not only through helping with local employment but also because of our commitment and involvement in improving our environment.

“Camden in Bloom encourages individuals, schools and children, tenants and resident associations and businesses to think about and improve their local environments and biodiversity for their own enjoyment, mental health and well-being and for the benefit of all.

“We are proud of our long association with Camden in Bloom which will probably continue for years to come.”
