Grow Wild funding – Create your own Grow Wild Community Site

19 Dec 2013 - 16:05 by michelle.foster

A Grow Wild community site is a place where local people use UK native plants to create a space for everyone to enjoy.

Grow Wild are awarding £500 to £5,000 for each Grow Wild community site.

At the moment, your Grow Wild site might be an unloved, neglected and rundown area that you’d like to reclaim for the local community. You just need to tell Grow Wild how you want to turn it into an inspiring space for everyone.

With the funding, people from all over the UK will create stunning sites that everyone will love and use.
