Judging Criteria

 

Judging will be based on photos or video links submitted

 

For the CIB Awards 2021 (Educational Institutions and Organisations), judging criteria comprise the following: 

a) Overall Garden Quality
      
The quality of the garden as a direct impact on how well it co-exists with its surroundings. A garden’s quality is measured by its aesthetics, housekeeping and standard of horticultural maintenance.

b) Level of Community Involvement and Inclusiveness

The consistent involvement of participants is the foundation of a sustainable community garden. Building links and networks with the larger community encourages the sharing of resources and strategies to foster community bonding and promote the love for gardening. 

c) Biodiversity and Sustainability Efforts

Community gardens serve as engaging educational spaces with opportunities for a wide variety of audiences to learn about horticulture, sustainability, biodiversity and much more.
