Growing Green

Thanks to Beatrice for passing on the details of the Green Parent writing competition. They're looking for articles of between 500 and 2,500 words on the theme of natural parenting. 

There's publication and £150 for the winner. 10 runners up will also be published with 'a hearty byline'. (I'll be interested to see how much more substantial that is compared to the regular kind.)

As well as pregnancy, childbirth and education, suggested topics are alternative health, sustainable lifestyles, green travel and gardening.

Thank you for the information, more should know about this.

It's not my strong point with, Alex.

I don't know how long he's been there (it's most definitely male!) but he fits into the gardens perfectly.

Patsy said...

Yes - that's why I blogged about it!

Have sent this to my daughter, who is both a parent, very green and a journalist.

Patsy said...

Hah! There go my chances of winning...

It sounds perfect for her.

Thank you for this, Patsy - I know a few young mums who might be interested and I'll pass the details on :-)

Cool to know. I certainly can't contribute but I know someone who might. Thanks. :)

I use a clothesline and have a garden, does that count? Probably not, but it's a neat idea.

Patsy said...

It's an interesting topic I think, Teresa.

Patsy said...

Glad it'll be useful to someone, Rob.

Patsy said...

If you use them, then I'm sure they must count, Elizabeth.
