Transform a Space

Grow Wild is awarding £500 for projects led by people aged 12-25 who want to transform a space in their community using UK native wild flowers and plants. We also want you to involve other people from your local area in the project, not just your friends. So think about who else could get involved.

Individuals and groups can apply by creating a short video telling us what you want to do and how you will spend the £500. The deadline for entries is Monday midday 27 Feb. Find out more here.

Get Creative

Grow Wild is awarding £500 for creative projects led by young people aged 12- 25 that will raise awareness about the importance of UK native wild flowers and plants. You can use visual art, music, poetry, dance, and theatre… whatever it is that you’re good at!

We’ll be inviting you to showcase your Get Creative project at a weekend takeover event at Edinburgh’s iconic Summerhall arts centre on 23 – 25 June 2017.

Individuals and groups can apply by creating a short video telling us what you want to do and how you will use the £500. The deadline for entries is Monday midday 27th Feb. Find out more here.
