On Monday night, I'm delighted to say, GreenPlantSwap was announced Website of the Year in the Gardening category of the Good Web Guide Awards 2016.
After 4 years slog, it's certainly a treat to have won it. And it's hard to believe that the site we launched with just a dozen or so members in the Glastonbury area in March 2013 has grown as it has. In most areas of the country now there are 100 or more members within a few miles ... and the numbers continue to grow.
This bodes well for the future, because LOCAL is what GreenPlantSwap is all about. We want to help you engage with other gardeners near you, for plants, for open gardens and for the pleasure that gardening shared with others can bring. The more members there are locally, the stronger our free service becomes for everyone.
So I think really we should be thanking you. It's GreenPlantSwap members who make the site great. Without you and all your content, there's no way we would have won the Award.
