For the last time in 2019, we’re offering young people aged 14-25 the chance to apply for £500 to lead a project that celebrates UK native wildflowers and fungi in exciting and engaging ways.Calling all young people!
Grow Wild are offering young people aged 14-25 the chance to apply for £500 to lead a project that celebrates UK native wildflowers and fungi in exciting and engaging ways.
That’s because at Grow Wild we’re all about UK native wildflowers and fungi. They’re amazing and beautiful, even mind-blowing! Wildflowers support our pollinators, but the UK has lost 97% of its wildflower habitat since the 1940s. We are also only just beginning to find out all the amazing things that Fungi can do. Scientists estimate that 95% of all plants rely on fungi to survive and thrive and they have saved countless human lives. Both wildflowers and fungi play an important part in the complex web of life within our natural world. Our challenge is to make everyone else as passionate as us… and that’s where you come in!
We want your project to reach and inspire lots of people in your school, youth group or community. You can use visual art, music, poetry, dance, or theatre… whatever it is that you and your friends are good at. Use your imagination; the more creative the better!
Why should I apply?
- Improve your C.V. or personal statement.
- Make a stronger connection with your community.
- Gain independence and develop new skills.
- Raise awareness about wildflowers and fungi.
