Illawarra, South Western Sydney and Western Sydney TAFE students will
compete in the landscape challenge , by designing
and building landscaped gardens following the garden theme of 'Modern
Australian Backyard' to impress the Royal Easter Show judges and gain
recognition for the 'People's Choice' Award.
The public will be able to vote for their favourite garden in the
'People's Choice Award' prior to the award announcement on Friday 25
March 2016. The winning team will create a $10,000 garden makeover for
the St Vincent de Paul Society, donated by TAFE NSW.
Students from Northern Sydney, Sydney, South Western Sydney and
Western Sydney will create floral masterpieces following the pavilion
theme 'Art in Bloom'. Flowers are judged on their condition, colour,
freshness and overall presentation.
The completed show gardens and floral displays will provide a range
of ideas, concepts, design trends and inspiration for any backyard or house.
The gardens and floral displays will be judged by panels of experts
on the first day of the show. There will be a formal presentation
ceremony for both competitions on Thursday 17 March 2016 at 2.30pm on
the flower and garden stage within the Southee Complex.

selling clothing and jewellery. Hair and Beauty students from Western
Sydney TAFE will demonstrate their skills in the 'pamper me' area
where people can relax while having their hair, nails and makeup done,
as well as, get the latest beauty tips.
Western Sydney TAFE will also participate in farriery displays at the
Horse Experience, chocolate and sugar workshops and a presentation on
sheep husbandry on the Cathy Freeman Lawn.
Sydney TAFE Visual Merchandising students will install displays
called 'Floral Kulchas' - a bunch of characters who bring floral
design and horticulture alive in an engaging educational stage show
TAFE NSW students participating at the show get a valuable
educational opportunity with unique insights into the challenges that
professionals face in the real world.
