RHS are supporting new gardening enthusiasts during their National Gardening Week Campaign 10-16 April.
As part of the 2017 ‘Greening Grey Britain’ for wildlife-themed Bloom launch, the RHS are seeking applications for support and funding for community gardening projects that involve young people. They are offering direct support from their outreach advisors and up to £500 per project towards plant and material costs for a number of groups.
The deadline is February 17, 2017, so please spread the word amongst your groups, encouraging as many to apply as possible!
The opportunity is open to all Bloom and It’s Your Neighbourhood groups. To apply, groups must be working in partnership with a young person’s group – this could be a school, a scout group a youth club or any community project that supports children or young people.

This review “sets out the main findings, achievements, challenges and lessons learned from Defra’s payments for ecosystem services (PES) pilot projects between 2012 and 2015. The evidence from these projects will help to inform the government’s thinking on innovative funding in developing the 25 Year Environment Plan.”
