About Jonah

From campaigning for new garden equipment to being the unofficial 'King of the Compost', Jonah always gets stuck in to gardening at school.

Judges' comments

"King of the Compost’ is certainly a worthy title! We were so impressed by hearing how Jonah collects green waste from his school kitchen, to add to the compost heap everyday. Keep up the good work, Jonah!"

"Jonah is a very natural presenter and explained the work being done in the school garden brilliantly. He could identify the plants they are growing with ease and his dedication to the garden is very clear. He is a great role model for other children in the school."
