Things to do in September -
Flowers.
Plant spring bulbs as soon as possible ... the shops have an excellent choice at the moment. Try out some new kinds that might suit the existing plants in the garden.
Renew any old or damaged furniture, you can get some great ideas at
www.garden-shopping.co.uk
Small bulbs can be used at the front of borders and in a rock garden.
Conditions for planting are ideal with adequate moisture to encourage rooting immediately.
Hanging baskets can be kept going a little longer with some liquid feeding.
Conditions are ideal for sowing hardy annual flower seeds, such as calendula and candytuft.

Marcelle CoakleyWe have a community gadren in Onslow that we would like to register, it is approx 1,400kms north west of Perth and we have just about completed all our major foundation work with an emphasis on health being the main focus of our gadren. It has a fruit forest and a large outdoor kitchen and wood fired oven and will be a meeting place for community groups and host monthly market days and be used to deliver health related services and larger community events. We have a page on facebook Onslow Community gadren and would love to join any networks that will give us the ability to interact and learn from other models especially in Australia.Kind regards,Marcelle CoakleyOnslow Community gadren co-ordinator.

"Hi Richard,
Thanks for all you've been doing at Rye Hills, the shed is excellent, really sturdy and the shelf will be great for seedlings etc.The water butts are a good solid job as well, once we get a good downpour and they fill up it will make life much easier.
The crops are coming along really well and hopefully we'll come back to some decent produce to harvest, the turnips, brussels sprouts, cabbages, onions and sweetcorn should all be ready end of August. Thanks for the maintenance as well, hope to see you in the new term.

I think the site is looking fantastic and I love seeing the pictures of what the local schools have been growing and doing with Dig It! My daughter attends Lockwood Primary School and got great pleasure out of her Gardening Club on a Thursday evening and even came home giving me tips from your gardening expert who helped run The Workshops. Great work can't wait to see what the next school term brings.

DIG IT Projects gets short listed for prestigous AWARD in LONDON.
The Awards are to be held at the "Grosvenor Hotel", Park lane, London on the Tuesday 3rd November.
The category entered was in the Green service - Micro Organisation's.
There were 40 entries which have come down to 5 finalist's, DIG IT Projects being one.
We have also been entered into "BEST NEW BUSINESS AWARDS 2009" by Business Link.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved and has helped me achieve this status so far.
Watch this space for the outcome.

The Green Business Awards are without equal in scope, in fairness, in scale.

They are the pinnacle of achievement. And, in the words of a memorable ad campaign, they do exactly what they say on the tin. Rightly then, winning a Green Business Award "Green Globe" is as great an achievement as winning an "Oscar" is to the film industry.

The Green Business Awards will be the only real benchmark of excellence in the UK in 2009 with an entry process and evaluation system devised by ENDS, ENDSCarbon and the editorial team of Management Today. They are an opportunity for large corporations, SMEs and smaller companies to participate and be judged fairly through the use of detailed metrics and an experienced and diverse judging panel.

Entry is free of charge to allow smaller businesses the same access to the awards as mightier organisations.

The Green Business Awards are also an opportunity to showcase initiatives as best practice examples in future ENDS or MT publications, as they cover UK operations, business functions, and other areas influenced by decisions made in the UK.

There are always big issues to be faced in an organisation's development:
none bigger, perhaps, than "going green".

Award categories have been refreshed and grouped into sections around carbon management, environmental management and green business development, making them relevant to all types of organisation, irrespective of size or type of operation. There are 9 Carbon categories, 6 Environmental Management categories and 3 Green Product, Service and Job Creation categories to enter.

Leading professional institutes have been engaged in the development of the Green Business Awards' screening and judging process: an exciting new empirical approach, which provides a comprehensive platform to best enable comparison between companies and makes it easier for companies to respond.

As a result of these changes, ENDS and MT are confident that the Green Business Awards 2009 will be an even more essential barometer of business performance on environment, climate change and sustainability. Just by entering you will evidence your organisation's commitment to these key issues. By making it to the short-lists you will be among the best "green" organisations in the UK. Winning a category "Green Globe" is an outstanding achievement: winning an ultimate Green Business Awards Green Globe of the Year is, simply, peerless.

Now, it's time to tell the judges about your green claims, ambitions, initiatives and achievements...and enter the Green Business Awards 2009!
