Background Information

Everybody wants to live and operate in a wonderful green, flowery,  watery and fresh air environment. How can this be possible if we do not identify and support special people amongst us who are gifted with admirable gardening and landscaping abilities. Whether it’s at home, hotels/restaurants/pubs, workplace, institutions, roads and public or private parks…we all want to interact with the best of nature. For this reason, and in particular if you admire the above described living and operating environment, let us come together to support those with Gardening and Landscaping talents. Interested and passionate contestants will be encouraged to register for the program, which includes describing their current living/working environment (including geographical location), describing what they intend to do (Gardening and Landscaping project), the duration of such a project and the commitment to keep up with taking and posting photos of their project from ‘Ground zero’ (the start) to ‘Paradise’ (the end), arranging for visitations by the Judges/assessors and eventually acceptance of the conclusions made by the judges. The climax of this annual exercise will be a Garde-La-Ye-Co festival during which the contestants will be paraded and progressive photos of their gardening/landscaping projects will be displayed for perusal by invited guests and with help of judges best performances will be Announced, Recognized and Awarded.
