About community projects

Grow Wild has awarded funding of £1,000 to £4,000 to community groups to bring people together to transform a communal spaces by sowing and growing UK native wild flowers and plants.

We’ve funded 232 projects, creating a lively network across the UK, all transforming spaces and promoting the importance of wild flowers.

The projects we've funded inspire new audiences to participate, especially young people aged 12-25, through unique, creative ideas and events, which ignite the interest of the local community. Find lots more information, and loads of pictures, from our community projects all over the UK by checking out our Project Showcase

View our interactive map of funded projects in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The map allows you to click through to each project’s profile page, featuring photos, activity records and ways to get in touch.

In 2017 we will be working with a small number of groups within our existing network, to try out some creative and unique ways of bringing even more people together through native wild flowers and plants. Watch this space!
