Congratulations to all the participants in the EduGrow School & Community Garden Awards for 2015. We had a great time judging entries from Western Australia, Northern Territory, Queensland and NSW and are happy to announce the EduGrow Award Winners.
The EduGrow School & Community Garden Awards recognise people and projects who are making a difference to improve student participation and health and wellbeing in inclusive, fun ways at their school.
