Are you part of a community, youth or voluntary group? Has your station adoption group got a project idea to help connect local people with the natural world? Do you know an urban space or station platform that would be ideal for a transformation?

If the answer is yes – apply for the 2023 Community Programme from Grow Wild, the national outreach learning programme of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

The opportunity is perfect for community groups with project ideas that connect urban communities with the natural world, in line with Grow Wild’s mission to bring people together to value and enjoy UK native plants.

The opportunity is open to groups nationwide, and Grow Wild hope to award a spread of projects across the UK. They are also particularly keen to receive applications from groups based in East London.

Successful applications will receive £2,000 to transform an urban space, as well as training and development opportunities.

Grow Wild also has a page of Six tips for your Grow Wild grant application, which potential applicants are encouraged to take a look at.

Closing date for applications is 10am on Friday 24 March.

Find out more and apply on the Grow Wild website.
