ST BRIGID’S College students have been taking part in a community garden project at the Horsham showgrounds. 

Due to the commitment and constant efforts to help the garden grow, the year 11 VCAL boys have been nominated for the Tidy Towns Protection of the Environment award. 

This award recognises outstanding achievement in the protection of the natural environment with particular focus on the conservation, preservation and management of fauna and flora.

Jayden Besford, Zac Gaulke and Sam Bigham are among the boys part of the group to be nominated for this award. 

Jayden Besford said that the gardens are coming along well. “We have put a lot of time and effort into the garden and have come a fair way,” he said. 

The group are yet to decide what to grow at the gardens but will be decided in the coming weeks.

Jayden Besford didn’t expect anything of the project, especially to get nominated for the Tidy Towns award. 

“It feels good to be nominated,” he said.

“It’s just good us boys are doing what we can to help out the community.” 

The project is being run with the help of Gj Gardner Homes which donated funds to get it up and running.
