Grow Wild Community Project Funding 2018

21 Nov 2017 - 15:02 by michelle.foster

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? Grow Wild

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:
o Young people aged 12-18
o Students and young people aged 18-25
o People living in urban areas
o People experiencing hardship and reduced access to services
o 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

You are eligible to apply if you are:
• A voluntary, youth or community group, which is constituted, not-for-profit or charitable. In particular:
o Youth groups
o Secondary schools
o Parish, town and community councils
o Health authorities, health boards and prisons
• A group that is able to deliver and be financially responsible for a community project.
• A group that holds a bank account in the name of their group and can show evidence of this to Grow Wild.
