About Louisa

Louisa consistently demonstrates a love and commitment to growing and caring for the nursery garden, and shows a great deal of passion and patience. Over the summer months when the nursery closes, Louisa has continued to care for the garden by watering during dry spells. She always has a big smile when engaged in activities which enable plants and animals to flourish.

Judges' comments

“Louisa clearly loves working in the community which is amazing to see from someone of such a young age.”
“At just 5 years old Louisa is already very talented and is definitely one to watch!”
“Louisa was an absolute delight to watch. She is only 5 years old but she is already showing great design skills and enterprise through selling her leafmould. She is full of joy, singing away as she works, and I have no doubt she will continue to grow from strength to strength.”
