Grow Wild Community Project Funding 2018

Have you got a ridiculously exciting idea for a project that brings people together through activities that help connect their community and celebrate UK native wild flowers, plants and/or fungi?

What is it we’re looking for?

Grow Wild is awarding funding of £2,000 or £4,000 to groups and projects that:

  • Stand out from the crowd: listen to your beneficiaries – be creative together, try something new that reaches new audiences.
  • Focus on UK native wild flowers, plants and/or fungi, highlighting the importance of these species for the environment, and for quality of life.
  • Will engage one or more of these groups:
    • Young people aged 12-18
    • Students and young people aged 18-25
    • People living in urban areas
    • People experiencing hardship and reduced access to services
    • Adults that are less engaged with their community and environmental activities
  • Will encourage large scale community involvement, ideally in the hundreds!
  • Will deliver the project in a space or location that is accessible to the general public i.e. is not in a restricted or controlled area
