Gardening Against the Odds is an initiative that recognises the hard work and creativity of those who, despite adversity, endeavour to improve the quality of life for communities and themselves through their efforts to create beautiful garden spaces.
This can include those who suffer from physical disabilities such as sight, health or mobility, mental or psychological disability and young gardeners whose lives have been made better through engaging in gardening and horticulture.
The charity is inviting nominations for its 2014 prize, which will include a trophy and an invitation to a ceremony at the Great Conservatory at Syon Park. Judges will include the renowned conservationist David Bellamy and the Duchess of Northumberland.
Entries are invited by individual gardeners and groups. Nominations are also greatly encouraged, as many people don’t realise that they deserve recognition.
