V Edition – 2014 «the gardens of abundance»
The theme of the fifth edition of the International Garden Festival of Allariz was “The gardens of abundance”. More than 30,000 people came to see the twelve gardens, among them, for first time, participated a garden created by the students of CEIP Padre Feijóo School.
The creativity and value enhancement of gardening and landscape are the most appreciated aspects by the public. The collection of €29,317 and the corresponding visitors convert the Festival into an attractive place of reference which allows the economic revitalisation of Allariz.
With the 40% of the votes, the public decided that the winner should be the IN-HOUSE garden, of the Korean Takyung Kim and Hansol Kang. The second prize corresponded to GEA, the team Unomas1 from Alicante, formed by Gonzalo Montoya Abadía, Miriam Montoya Abadía and Paloma Hierro García. “Hay luz verde al final del túnel” (”There is green light at the end of the tunnel”), a thoughtul garden created by Bea García, Patrizia Giannatasio, Araceli Abalde and Carlos García, won the third prize.
Furthermore, several business events took place in this edition. Using the space as a showcase for the gardening and landscape business world, as well as the organisation of cultural activities, contribute to convert the Festival into a point of reference for the green sector.
Companies like Honda, Coplant and Husqvrna presented their new products in the Festival. Bloggers and fashion companies have also requested the space for their catalogues, and the neighbours took their own photos there.
