Hunt Deltel is a long-time supporter of the Sustainable Home Garden 2022 competition. At the annual awards ceremony in the botanical garden, a representative from the company handed prizes to the winners. Ms Jeanette Larue said that this year's turnout was fantastic and that the organisers and judges were impressed by the number of sustainable individuals and families.
This year, in response to popular demand, the competition was expanded to include a medium-garden category, emphasising sustainable techniques, including water conservation, waste management, recycling, and composting, and integrating other important plants among flowering ones.
Flavien Joubert, the Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development, praised the contestants and the ministry's efforts to engage locals in making Seychelles greener.
During the occasion, the minister highlighted that "community involvement is vital to creating a real difference and towards growth" in environmental and social domains.
