News story posted: 06/12/2017

Grow Wild is awarding funding of £2,000 or £4,000 to creative or innovative projects that will bring people together through activities that connect their community and celebrate UK native wildflowers, plants and/or fungi.


Groups and projects that will be awarded funding will:


  • Stand out from the crowd - think something creative, or even better something that hasn’t been done before.
  • Focus on UK native wildflowers, 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, and/or 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


Voluntary, youth or community groups, which are constituted, not-for-profit or charitable are eligible for the fund. This includes youth groups, secondary schools, community councils, health authorities, health boards and prisons.


Grow Wild is the UK’s biggest-ever wild flower campaign, bringing people together to transform local spaces with native, pollinator-friendly wild flowers and plants.


Deadline for applications is midday on 15 January 2018.
