The Victorian Schools Garden Awards (VSGA) inspires school communities to celebrate their gardening achievements while promoting a lifelong connection with their natural environment and improving student learning, health and wellbeing.
Established by Paul Crowe OAM and the late Kevin Heinze in 1977, the Victorian Schools Garden Awards have a long history of bringing the joy of gardens and gardening to school aged children. Held annually, the Awards program recognises new and existing gardens and rewards the achievements of students and school communities in school gardening. The awards are open to all state government, catholic and independent Schools. VSGA have also introduced a new grants program designed to provide seed funding to schools to establish new gardens.
