You can see that the Food Garden of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens (RTBG) was entered into the prestigious Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards and listed as a semi-finalist in that competition, here.
A few weeks ago RTBG reported on its Facebook, ‘we’re semi- finalists in the Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards! Congratulations to our staff and valued volunteers who look after our Community Food Garden! What a fantastic achievement to be listed as a 2020 semi-finalist in the Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards. Did you know our garden showcases best practice principles in organic and sustainable produce-growing techniques and demonstrates to visitors the variety of seasonal crops that can be easily grown in home gardens. The Community Food Garden produces over 1,500kg of produce each year which is donated to local charities who ensure it goes to the people in our community who need it the most.
The Tasprint Community Group of the Year Award recognises groups that make a significant contribution to their community. These community groups share a strong sense of team spirit, and play a vital role in enhancing the social, economic, commercial and environmental prosperity of their region. Whether it be working together on an event, restoration project, providing a service or program, it is important to recognise and encourage these groups, as their efforts help to make our communities stronger and more vibrant. Winners will be announced at the Awards Gala Presentation Dinner on Friday 6th November 2020!’
