Community Gardens Award
Funding to support horticultural projects which benefit local communities in England and Wales.
Set up in 2011 in memory of the writer and gardener Elspeth Thompson, the Community Gardens Award offers grants for projects run by amateur garden groups with a community focus across England and Wales.
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
There is no fixed minimum or maximum award, but grants do not usually exceed £5,000.
The deadline to apply is 28 February 2022.
