A diverse range of neighbourhood gardens for all ages and community groups has been selected as finalists in the first SGD ‘Designing for Community Space’ Award. The shortlisted gardens are:
Montpelier Community Nursery Garden
The ‘Designing for Community Space’ Award is the only category in the 2013 Awards open to non-members of the SGD. It invited members of the public to submit entries for green spaces owned by, used by or designed by the local community. The Award is bestowed on the garden.
Judges looked at the many factors and circumstances governing the design of the gardens and examined how the garden design had affected the community that used it. All four gardens were considered to be welcoming and engaging spaces well-loved and used by locals and the visiting public.
The Award winner will be announced at The SGD Awards Ceremony on 24 January 2014 along with the winners in all other categories.
Ceremony tickets can be booked online here. ‘Early bird’ tickets can be purchased at a discounted price of £99 until 22 November 2013.
