Environment Directorate will launch the Cork School Garden Competition 2016 in Griffins Garden Centre on February 22nd. 

The aim of the 'Cork Schools Competition' is to support pupils, teachers in County Cork to bring nature, wildlife, plants and colour into their school garden/grounds, to promote horticulture and biodiversity and to give students a chance to interact with the environment and nature in a positive way.

Studies have shown that school gardens promote positive environmental attitudes and provide an excellent opportunity to develop more positive attitudes towards science at an early age.
The 2015 /16 competition is open to all primary schools in County Cork who have a school garden or are in the process of developing one.
