Is your local community in need of gardening funds?
National Garden Scheme – Community Gardens Award
The funding is for gardening projects carried out within local communities.
No fixed minimum or maximum amount is set but awards do not usually exceed £5,000.
The funding is only available to projects in England and Wales run by amateur gardeners within community groups.
The funding is for the creation of a garden or a similar project (such as an allotment) with horticultural focus for the benefit of the local community.
The project should aim to bring a community together by creating a space people can share, by the acquisition and sharing of gardening knowledge and skills and by inspiring a love of gardening.
Funding could cover expenses such as:
- Site preparation (including hire of small mechanical tools such as rotavators)
- Hand tools
Applications open annually in early September and close on 31st December.
