The Growing a Greener Britain charity was set up by The Landscape Group (a nationwide contractor that looks after public green spaces across the UK) to help fund community projects in publicly-owned parks and open spaces.
The charity aims to support creative and innovative ideas that improve local greenspaces and also funds projects that will provide people with training and work experience opportunities and provide local employment opportunities through the creation of maintenance projects. Projects that have previously received funding include The Peckham Coal Line urban park and the Paxton Primary allotment.
To access the Fund, applicants need to raise money towards their project via the “Spacehive” crowdfunding website. A total of £50,000 of funding is available and The Landscape Groups will pledge a maximum of £5,000 towards money raised through Spacehive website.
Applications are accepted at any time.
