The RHS has launched a new funding and support initiative called, “Greening Grey Britain with Communities in 2019”. They are looking for new projects that will bring seasoned community gardeners together with young green-fingered recruits. To the right projects, they are offering expert hands-on support and up to £500 worth of plants and materials.
In their own words, they say, “Imagine forgotten littered corners reborn as vibrant wildflower meadows, car parks lined with trees to slow down storm water or disused areas becoming productive gardens, with food to share with the community”.
Projects have to fit with one or more of three themes.
- Grow for people
- Grow for the planet
- Grow for wildlife
Thinking of our own site, several areas spring to mind as being ripe for development. Is anyone itching to take up the challenge of building a bid or have ideas for possible projects?
