Presented in association with the Royal Agricultural Society (RAS),
the Challenge involves Landscape Construction students from three
different TAFE NSW Institutes pitting their creative and construction
skills against each other to create the most inspiring garden design.
Landscaping-Easter-ShowNow in its sixth year, the Challenge takes
place at the RAS' Royal Easter Show in Sydney Olympic Park where
thousands of show-goers will have the opportunity to inspect and
admire the three competing landscape designs and vote for their
favourite in the 'People's Choice' category.
This year, the three participating Institutes are Illawarra,
represented by Yallah Campus, South Western Sydney Institute (SWSi),
represented by Padstow College and Western Sydney Institute (WSI),
represented by Richmond College.
So, what kind of designs can we expect to see with the theme of
'Modern Australian Backyard'? A concrete emu or two (ala Kath and
Kim)? A majestic hills hoist with some clean socks and jocks flapping
in the wind? A lone lemon tree, standing quiet and dignified in the
corner? Watch this space and find out. The fun starts on Thursday 17
March when the Show opens to the public.
