The Princess & The Ivy

The Eden Project is one of the botanic gardens taking part in the 2012 Olympic Wreath Competition.

The idea is for young people aged 11-19 to design an Olympic wreath fit for a champion that contains at least three plants that represent Britain. At least one has to carry a conservation message related to the plant’s environmental, economic or cultural significance.

Once the wreath is made entrants have to submit a photo of themselves wearing it :D plus a list of the plants used and a short piece about why they were chosen. The closing date for entries is the end of the year.

The Eden Project will chose five winners, which will then be submitted BGCI global wreath competition. Eden’s winners will receive certificates and will be contacted by the Eden Project in January 2012.

Winners of the global BGCI competition will have their photo displayed in London during the Summer Olympics 2012. They will be announced on the BGCI competition page and contacted by the Eden Project.
