The Garden Days in May 2015
At Beervelde there are two juries to encourage the exhibitors and to thank them for all their efforts.
The Ladies Jury
The ladies jury (Lieve Staute, Veerle Aelterman, Pia Deschepper and Martine Piens) will judge the ambiance of the exhibit and the way the exhibitors pitch fits into the "Guidelines". These guidelines make sure that this event is always as attractive and pleasant as possible.
There are 4 types of prizes to give away: the small bronze ribbon, the big bronze ribbon, the silver ribbon and the golden ribbon.
