Chelsea Success 2014

LDAGF scored a remarkable success by winning a silver medal in their first ever appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show in May.  The “Techno Allotment” demonstration garden appeared in the Discovery Section in the pavilion. 

During the long and careful preparation for the event LDAGF Publicity Officer, Phil Gomersall said “This is a great opportunity to promote nationwide, our wonderful and healthy activity of allotment gardening and all the benefits it has to offer, fresh fruit and vegetables, physical exercise, fresh air, new friendships, social cohesion and much more.”

The judges rated the display “very good for overall impression and endeavour; good for plants and information/interpretation”.

Here are some pictures of some of the hard work that went into the show, and the outcome:
