Congratulations to our finalists

The Back to Earth Initiative puts your green waste to good use, creating recycled organic compost to help farms, gardens and parks bloom. Soon one of our 16 finalists will help a local space do the same with $5000 to bring their project to life. Three category winners will also receive $1000 to help their project bloom. A big thank you to Gardenworld for their sponsorship of a $1000 voucher.

Thank you to everyone who nominated, pledged and voted, and congratulations on growing amazing support and almost 20,000 votes across 70 extremely worthy projects. It's now over to the judging panel to assess each project’s level of community involvement, community and environmental benefit, and ability to demonstrate the Back to Earth message and aims.

The winning project will be officially announced by Monday 6 June. Good luck!
