A COMMUNITY garden which is growing in popularity has now got its own logo.

Stamford Community Garden invited students on the illustration foundation degree at New College Stamford to design a logo and a poster.

The logos by Hannah Baxter and Emily Gaylor were chosen, which have been incorporated into illustration work by Julie Rae-Clarke.

Secretary Heidi Haxeltine said: “We were delighted with the results of the students work. The leading designs were taken to a high standard of presentation, which proved to be problematic in choosing a design.

“The garden committee invited Vic Couzens and his wife Yvonne to meet with the illustration students at New College, to view the work and endorse the general opinion. It was a tough decision.”

A poster advertising a free course teaching people how to grow their own vegetables, which is currently being run at the college, was also designed by students.

Course tutor Richard Smith said: “This opportunity to work to a live brief fulfils criteria to be met in the course programme, and students eagerly applied themselves to the task producing a range of alternative design and illustration approaches.”

Stamford Community Garden is based in Uffington Road with the aim of getting people to grow their own fruit and vegetables.
