Grow your own...snap your own
If you grow your own vegetables, fruit and herbs then why not get involved with our photography competition to help encourage others to give GYO a go.
We’re asking you to share your experiences of growing your own food through the competition to be in with the chance of winning a £25 voucher.
The competition is designed to demonstrate to other people how easy it is to get involved with growing their own. Seeing the experiences of others should encourage those new to grow your own to feel more confident in giving it a go.
If you have tried your hand at growing your own food this year then this is a great opportunity to show off your efforts and take pride in your produce.
All you need to do is email in photos of your own experiences, for example pictures of your allotments, patio containers and grow bags, to firstname.lastname@example.org, which will be displayed via our social media platforms. We’d love to see selfies of you with your plants and produce too.
Please include your name, address and contact number with your entry when you email it.
We will select the competition winner – the photograph that we feel best illustrates the theme of grow your own in September, 2015. The winning entry will receive a £25 gift voucher.
The closing date for entries is Thursday, October 1.
We find people are keen to have a go at growing their own, but may be nervous because they feel they don’t know how to do it and might do something wrong.
By providing customers with free information on how to get started we can help them overcome any fears they may have.
