Come join us and build a garden!

It’s spring, and Allianz Garden Show Ireland is calling for all gardeners to ‘spring into action’ and get involved in the Team Garden Challenge at the 2015 Allianz Garden Show Ireland event which takes place from 8-10 May at Antrim Castle Gardens.

Pictured above are members of the Men’s Shed Garden Challenge team who are all set to get to work ahead of the event!

The Team Garden Challenge is supported by Enkalon Foundation and is for everyone – from those who have dreamt of being a garden designer or landscaper to those who just want to get their hands dirty and have some fun. Community groups, students, work colleagues, groups of friends or family get together to take on the challenge of designing and building a garden in a day.

Peter Dalton from Enkalon Foundation said, “This is a fun team challenge. It is always great to see the finished gardens and it is a fun experience for all involved with a BBQ in the middle of the day. Whether a team building exercise for community groups or businesses, or simply a way to get the family together this is something different.”

Teams can take as long as they like in advance to design and plan their 3m x 3m garden plot but they must get together the day before the opening of the Show (Thursday 7 May 2015) at Antrim Castle Gardens to build their garden in one day. The theme for the 2015 Team Garden Challenge is: “A Colourful Garden!” which can be interpreted in any way.

A ‘festival of flowers, food and fun’ will greet visitors to the 2015 Allianz Garden Show Ireland programme bringing the fun of ‘all things garden’ to as many people as possible. Sitting alongside the traditional array of specialist plants, artisan food stalls, local craft and show gardens will be fun filled activities appealing to all age groups – live music, a dedicated kids’ zone, a garden cinema and much more. Plus, the appearance of international gardening and food experts, including BBC’s Monty Don who will be at the Show on Saturday 9th May.

We look forward to seeing you take part!
