Keep Wales Tidy’s Local Places for Nature scheme invites you to apply for a food growing package.
Due to recent changes in eligibility criteria, more places than ever before can get free, pre-paid garden packages that include native plants, tools and other materials. We’ll handle the orders and deliveries, and our project officers will even provide support on the ground.
Anyone eligible, who wants to create a food growing area for their community can apply. We are now able to support applications that are not located in urban, deprived areas.
This is your chance to reverse nature’s decline and provide an important boost to the well-being of your local community at the same time.
- Looking to start a community fruit and herb garden? Harvest and enjoy the fruits of your labour with our ‘Fruit and herb garden’ starter package – it’s full of fruit trees and bushes to help your local community grow. Visit this webpage to find out more.
- Perhaps you’re looking to make an impact on a larger scale? Our development packages range from wildlife gardens to community food growing packs. See full details and apply here.
- If you or your community are part of the Black, Asian, and minority ethnic community, you may be considered for any of the starter or development packages we have available, for the full list click here.
- If you or your community are part of the disabled community, you can apply for any of the starter or development packages we have available, for the full list see our website.
Applications will be assessed on a first come, first served basis by the project grant panel until all packages have been allocated, so be sure to get your application in soon!
