Judges' Comments

“It was great to see a strong set of entries for this really important category, covering a variety of critical environmental issues. It was also encouraging to see that there was more than one entry that focused on the issue of using peat. Gardening is at its very heart a way to work with nature to create beautiful design, wholesome food, and green spaces that support health, culture, and wildlife. Yet, all too often, the products that are offered to the gardener are counter to this relationship. One of the very worst on the market is peat, and it's only been through educating the public on its perils that any action has been taken to remove it from use. Consumer awareness and pressure from the public have led to the ban on peat from 2030”

“Lauren Hall's captivating piece plays into that education and is presented in a way to reach a large audience and visually show the impacts of peat harvesting on the environment. She makes clear the issues and also communicates some of the solutions that are being explored to heal peat bogs, support industry, and to keep gardening green”
