Our funded community projects

Grow Wild awards funding of £2,000 or £4,000 to community groups to bring people together to value and enjoy UK native wildflowers, plants and fungi. 

This year we have some fantastic projects, inspiring people across the UK to engage with UK native wildflowers, plants and fungi through unique, creative ideas and events which involve the local community. We are always amazed by the creativity and inspiration of the groups, as they constantly find new ways to engage people in learning about UK native wildflowers, plants and fungi.
