If your group is interested in developing a local growing project, it would be worth looking at the Grow Wild Initiative at growwilduk.com/community-project-funding.


Grow Wild is awarding funding of £1,000 to £4,000 to community groups who want to bring people together to transform a communal space by sowing and growing UK native plants. This is a great opportunity for groups who might already have been working up ideas and want to make things happen in their area.


If your group needs any support with this you can either contact:

  • The ‘Love Where You Live’ team on 01226 773 014 so they can direct you to support through your Area Team.
  • Dan Wildsmith (Local Food Networks Coordinator – Voluntary Action Barnsley) on 07810 875 537 or 01226 320 100 ext 223.
