Green Man competition

On 10th September, the Greening Group joins forces with the Horticultural Society at their Summer Show to provide stalls of Home Grown Produce for sale
(details of how you can sell your own Home Grown Produce there are here)

In conjunction with this event we are running a ‘Design a Green Man’ competition for you to enter. The Green Man is a figure from the ancient past and symbolises rebirth, bounteous harvest and the cycle of growth. Green Men can be seen on the walls of churches and cathedrals and often as the sign for pubs of that name.
Here are some examples (try Googling for more ideas):
