Dandelion and BEMIS funding for community food projects

The Dandelion Harvest Grants Programme, launched in partnership with BEMIS, is offering grants to community councils and community groups who are growing their own food or plan to start on their growing journey.

The scheme will fund successful applicants to ‘grow new growers’ and participate in the Dandelion Harvest weekend which is to take place on September 10th and 11th.

There are two different funds available, depending on where you are in your growing journey:

* If your organisation already grows, please see the Dandelion application guidance, which gives you all the information you need. Grants of between £500 and £3000 will be made from this fund, and applications can be made via this online form.

* If your organisation is starting to grow please visit the BEMIS website for information on the Inclusive and Inspiring Communities Fund, which is aimed at community organisations which have not yet started to grow their own food. Grants of up to £2000 are available through this fund.

The deadline for applications for both these funds is Friday 20 May 2022.
