Celyn worked with Kew Gardens again on their £10.5m Grow Wild Scheme to bring people and communities together to sow, grow and support UK native wild flowers. The Grow Wild Scheme encourages people to get together to transform unloved urban sites into wildlife-friendly wild flower patches.
For the second phase of the campaign, Kew Gardens and The Big Lottery Fund are looking for people to nominate a project in their community aimed at transforming an unloved or neglected site, particularly in urban areas, to receive funding from Grow Wild. They are going to create four inspirational Grow Wild sites one each in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The winning site will receive £120,000 to create an inspiring green space using UK native plants.
