Fabulous Fairfield Garden Awards
Council recognises the hard work of our City’s keen gardeners through the monthly Fabulous Fairfield Awards.
The program acknowledges residents who take responsibility for the area immediately outside their property for their own enjoyment as well as improving the overall look and environmental quality of our City. These residents:
- Maintain landscaping outside the home;
- Mow the grass outside their property;
- Pick up litter on the footpath or in the gutter and;
- Grow beautiful gardens with flowers, vegetables and natives
Monthly winners receive a cheque to the amount of $50, a framed certificate from the Mayor and a native plant grown by volunteers at the Fairfield Community Native Plant Nursery.
Fabulous Fairfield Garden of the Year Awards
All of our monthly Fabulous Fairfield winners are eligible for the annual Best Garden of the Year Awards which are presented at the last Council meeting of the year, in December.
In addition, Council runs a Best School Garden competition which awards public schools who maintain striking gardens.
The winners are judged on a number of categories, such as planting creativity, planting management, garden structure, sustainability, presentation and infrastructure.
