RHS Greening Grey Britain Community Support Programme - Open for Applications

RHS Greening Grey Britain Community Support Programme - Open for Applications!

The Greening Grey Britain (GGB) Community Support Programme is now open and might be of interest to your contacts.

In 2019, the RHS will support a number of intergenerational partnership projects between community organisations and schools/youth groups, who want to work together to transform an unloved space in their area to benefit the local community and environment.

They''ll provide successful applicants with hands-on support from the RHS Outreach Team, plus up to £500 worth of plants and materials per project.  Hands-on support can be tailored to meet the needs of your group but may include some or all of the following:

  • Help to plan your project
  • Horticultural/planting advice – for example to develop planting plans appropriate to your site conditions
  • Help to source reputable suppliers of plants and materials
  • Purchase and delivery of plants and materials to your project site
  • Help to engage a wide range of people with your project, through consultation, workshops and training
  • Advice on how to maintain your project in the future

This year applicants are asked to show how their transformation project would fit in with one or more of the following themes:

  • Grow for People: create a garden to help promote better health and wellbeing
  • Grow for the Planet: create a garden that will help to address local environmental issues
  • Grow for Wildlife: create a space for wildlife to boost local biodiversity

If you would like to find out more about these themes or the programme in general, please visit the RHS website - https://www.rhs.org.uk/ggbwithcommunities
