General information and Entry Form
RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood (IYN) is a scheme for volunteer-led community gardening groups which are focused on cleaning up and greening up their local area. It provides groups with the chance to get involved in the wider RHS Britain in Bloom initiative.
There is no charge to participate.
How does it work?
The wonderful thing about It’s Your Neighbourhood is that no two projects are the same - each group chooses its activity based on the needs of the local community. Participants are asked to carry out their projects with a focus on the three core IYN pillars:
• Community Participation
• Environmental Responsibility
• Gardening Achievement
Those taking part get free horticultural advice from the RHS as well as an annual visit from an It’s Your Neighbourhood assessor. The visit gives useful feedback, helping groups to develop their activities year on year.
Who can get involved?
RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood is open to groups of all sizes and with a variety of projects, as long as they are focused on cleaning up and greening their local area.
In the RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood campaign there are five levels of achievement:
Levels of achievement – overall marks:
Groups are visited annually and feedback is given using the IYN assessment form.
The annual visits in Wales are arranged by Wales in Bloom and take place the first two weeks of July on an annual basis.
Unlike Britain in Bloom, IYN is not competitive and the assessors should be welcomed as mentors – not as judges - who can provide constructive feedback. Following the assessors’ visit, certificates of achievement are presented to all participating groups at our Annual Award Ceremony in September.
Groups who have done consistently well over time may be nominated to receive the RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood National Certificate of distinction.
