Gardening Competition that grows communities

Link Wentworth’s Gardening Competition has been held each year for more than ten years and this year we are opening the competition with a new name which reflects its aim: Growing Communities Gardening Competition.

Last year, our Western Sydney and the Nepean Blue Mountains residents were introduced to the competition and we received more than 30 incredible entries from all around Sydney. We have so many amazing and diverse Link Wentworth gardens featuring flowers, edibles, succulents, cacti, and more. Kaye’s garden is a perfect example.

We also have many shared, community gardens which residents create and tend to with the help of Link Wentworth staff members and our partners such as The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and Vegepod. In the last two years we have launched six new community gardens which have created a sense of belonging and community between residents, as well as being competition contenders.
