St. George’s, Grenada – February 21, 2018 – 2017 was a record year for Pure Grenada winning its 13th Gold award at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and already Team Grenada is setting its sights on gold once again. With the help of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA), the Grenada Chelsea Flower Show Team led by Mrs. Catherine John, is on its way to a 14th Gold. At a short ceremony held at the GTA Headquarters, Chief Executive Officer Patricia Maher and Mrs. John signed a partnership agreement for increased financial support this year.
“The GTA is happy to increase its support to the Grenada Chelsea Flower Show Team for 2018. We appreciate their sterling efforts over the years in creating wonderful designs that not only depict the beauty of the destination’s amazing gardens but also attract people from all over the world to visit our tri-islands of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique” said Ms. Maher following the signing. She added “We know we live in a garden of eden and this recognition brings us international exposure to visitors who want to see it for themselves.”
In 2017, Grenada was awarded its 13th gold medal for the exhibit titled ‘Historical Botanical Gardens’ which was described by judges as the best Grenada exhibit they had ever judged. This year, the team is hoping to once again wow the world with another great display. Mrs. John said, “ We thank the GTA for its continued support and the team is very excited about the upcoming show and our new theme.”
In 2018, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show will take place from May 22-26 in London.
