One of the most popular competitions at the annual show, the horticulture competition offers an opportunity for everyone from the littlies with their edible art to the avid gardeners and floral artists.

With a huge selection of categories, the guarantee is that if it’s a plant, there’s likely to be a section for it at the Brookfield Show.

 2018 Brookysaurus Competition
Brookfield Garden Centre, in conjunction with The Brookfield Show, is sponsoring The Brookysaurus Competition!

We are inviting all the local schools and kindergartens to enter the competition by creating the Brookysaurus (an imagined dinosaur) and a place for it to live. Entry is free and all entries will be exhibited in the Horticulture Pavilion.
Brookfield Garden Centre wants to encourage children to get out gardening, growing and developing new skills. The winner of this competition will receive a visit from the School Program Team along with a donation of plants, staff time and materials to work on a garden project with the winning class.
Every school/kindergarten that wishes to participate will receive a free Brookysaurus Pack which includes:
  • Pot
  • Indoor plants
  • Modelling clay
  • Potting mix
With these tools and your imaginations build a Brookysaurus and the Brookysaurus’ World. Entries can add touches of their own to create their story. Paint the pot, use seedpods, rocks and other found materials. Is this Brookysaurus a herbivore or a carnivore? Maybe the Brookysaurus still survives deep in the Brookfield bush and appears once a year around show time! Can you think of other stories about your Brookysaurus?
All participants keep their entries after the judging and will love having living pot plants to keep in the classroom, verandah or staffroom.
