About Cody Marie

Despite not having access to a garden at home, Cody demonstrates real enthusiasm and commitment to growing in school and has done for the past three years. Nothing is too much trouble and she will always give any job her best, even coordinating troops of pupils to ensure all the plants are well watered during the summer months. 

Judges' comments
