Supported by the Big Lottery Fund and led by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; Grow Wild inspires communities, friends, neighbours and individuals across the UK to come together to transform local spaces, by sowing, growing and enjoying native wild flowers. We believe that this simple act of creativity can turn spaces into beautiful, inspiring and colourful wildlife havens; encouraging people to care for and delight in the nature around them. Any space can be transformed – from balconies to old boots, streets to shared spaces, boxes to buckets. Anything that will hold soil, water and seeds will do:  just let your imagination grow wild. 

We provide free seed kits for group leaders to plant with their community, youth, residents or other group.

We provide small grants, of £1,000 to £4,000, for groups to join a network of Grow Wild community projects.

One Grow Wild flagship site will be funded £120,000 to deliver an inspiring and innovative project and will be decided on by a public vote.

So let your imagination soar.....
