Aims/priorities: The funding is for gardening projects carried out within local communities all over England and Wales. 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.
Who can apply? The funding is only available to projects in England and Wales run by amateur gardeners within community groups.
Grant amount: No fixed minimum or maximum amount is set but awards do not usually exceed £5,000.
Application process: Application guidelines and an application form are available on the website of the National Garden Scheme.
Deadline: 28 February 2022.
