For 2019, the ever-popular School Wheelbarrow Competition had a new theme, Around The World in 41 Barrows.
Schools in the Midlands area were encouraged to look at the plants and gardens, as well as the architecture and cultures, of the world for their inspiration, creating a homage to their chosen land in the space of a barrow! From the Zen gardens of Japan to the intense patterns of Morocco, the bulbs of the Netherlands to the Alpine flora of Switzerland, each barrow was a creative and colourful potted tribute to the countries of the world as seen through the eyes of the school children.
