Inspiring women across the country to create a greener and cleaner place to live.

WIs are invited to design a planted area that could be recreated within their local community. The planted area can be designed for any season, themed to reflect the spirit of the WI, local community, or which tells a special story. Members are encouraged to work together and submit a design (or mood board), no larger than A3, containing a sketched 2D design (birds-eye view), a clear explanation behind the design theory, research undertaken during the creation, colour schemes, examples and reasoning behind plants and materials used, plus a clear, drawn image of the finished planted area. It is up to the WI to interpret the theme as they wish, and decide whether to base their design on a season or a theme. WIs must submit their finished design directly to the NFWI for judging (not via federations as years). Only 1 entry per WI will be accepted. Cost of entry is £10. Deadline for entries is FRIDAY 27 AUGUST 2021. The schedule and further information is available at on My WI at:
