Final free garden packs up for grabs from Local Places for Nature

We’re giving away the last 70 free garden packs to communities across the country.

Since Local Places for Nature launched in 2020, more than 900 gardens have been created, restored and enhanced across Wales. Now, with only 70 packages left and this year’s application deadline approaching, time is running out for communities to get involved.

It’s incredible to see organisations of all shapes and sizes benefitting from Local Places for Nature – from fire stations and hospitals to homeless charities and housing associations. The new gardens aren’t just creating havens for wildlife but are providing a much-needed boost to communities across Wales. What are you waiting for? If you know an area that could benefit from being transformed, apply now before it’s too late!

What does a Local Places for Nature package include?

Each one includes native plants, tools and other materials needed to create a garden. We handle the orders and deliveries and our expert staff even provide help with building and planting.

All orchard packages have been allocated but there are still wildlife and food growing packages available.

Starter packages for community or volunteer groups looking to create small Food Growing Garden or Wildlife Gardens.

Development packages for community-based organisations that are ready to take on a bigger project and build a Food Growing Garden or Wildlife Garden.

The initiative is jointly funded by the Welsh Government, part of a wider Welsh Government ‘Local Places for Nature’ programme committed to creating, restoring and enhancing nature ‘on your doorstep’ and The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Apply for a free garden pack.

The deadline for applications is Monday 21 November 2022.
