Get involved in Ellerslie 2010

ELLERSLIE 2010 International Flower Show
Make the world a better place?
Here’s how..... In 2010 Landscape Architect Carl Pickens will create another exhibition garden for the Ellerslie International Flower Show in Christchurch, with help from sponsors and volunteers. This time he needs 2000 individual answers to a question: What can we do to make the world a better place? The answers will be embedded into the garden in a unique and special way. Go to and follow the link at the top of the page titled ‘Ellerslie Question’ for easy to follow instructions. All ages are welcome, as are all answers. It’s your story Carl wants to hear. Some messages / people will be invited to attend a special event to welcome the messages into the garden and they will have a chance to walk through the garden just prior to the show opening.
