School Gardens

Creating a garden at the Show provides students with the amazing opportunity to design, grow, build and showcase a garden at an RHS Show. By participating, children and young people can gain invaluable hands-on experience with plants and horticulture, while developing an understanding of different growing practices and environmentally friendly gardening whilst being fully supported every step of the way, including from horticultural expert and former BBC Blue Peter gardener, Chris Collins.

What is the aim of the School Garden Challenge?

To promote gardening and horticulture to a range of children and young adults, by supporting the embedding of the School Gardens Challenge into their curriculum.

The School Garden Challenge is an opportunity for schools and home educators within the three counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.

What is the theme for 2024?

The theme for 2024 is ‘The Magic of Music: Choose a song or musical to bring to life in a garden to make your heart sing!’

You can be as creative as you like when designing your garden. You may decide to incorporate a tree, plant a living hedge, build a bug hotel…the possibilities are endless!

The schools taking part in the 2024 challenge include:

  • Stourport High School
  • Pershore College
  • Pathways Day Service
  • RGS Worcester
  • The Downs School
  • Bromsgrove School
  • Nunnery Wood High School
  • Three Counties Academy Trust
  • Wye Federation
  • Bredon School
  • Kitebrook School

2024 School Garden Applications have now closed.
