Following on from the success of last years competition, the Royal Horticultural Society are looking for mentors and assessors to support this years Green Plan It challenge. This year the challenge will take place over 10 weeks from September to December for Year 8 and 9 / S2 and 3 students to imagine and design a garden for the school or a community space.

Students will work with an industry mentor to carry out research before building a model of their chosen garden to bring their ideas to life. At the end of the challenge, students will compete against other local schools and present their designs at a celebration event.
