Grants Available For Grow Wild Spaces
Grow Wild which is four-year campaign to bring people together to sow UK native plants has announced that local voluntary, community, parish and town councils, youth groups, health authorities and secondary schools; etc. can apply for grants of between £1,000 and £4,000 to create a “Grow Wild Community Site.
Grow Wild projects can include an unloved area that organisations want to reclaim for their local community or perhaps somewhere that’s a bit neglected or run-down and applicants want to turn it into an inspiring space for everyone. The funding cannot cover staff costs but can cover costs specifically for the Grow Wild project. Grow Wild expect most of Grow Wild’s money to be used in creating the site, such as for materials, plants and seeds, and any volunteer costs. Grow Wild expect to fund 60 groups in 2015.
The closing date for applications is the 2nd December 2014.
