Is there an area in your community that needs some TLC? Apply for one of our free garden packages!

Since early 2020, we’ve created, restored and enhanced more than 600 green spaces across the country. Community groups and organisations of all shapes and sizes have been involved – from disability charities and youth groups to social enterprises and carer groups.

We’re still welcoming applications for Local Places for Nature. However, please note, any applications submitted in November and December 2021, won’t be assessed until early 2022.

Check out #BacktoNature on social media for all the latest news.

What does a local places for nature package include?

Each prepaid package includes native plants, tools and other materials. We’ll handle the orders and deliveries, and our project officers will even provide support on the ground.

Our packages fall into two categories…

1. Starter Packages

For community or volunteer groups looking to create a Pollinator Garden, Fruit and Herb Garden, or Urban Garden.

How can I get involved?

It’s a simple application process. Choose your package, read through the guidance, and download and complete the application form.

All applications will be assessed by a grant panel that includes representatives from Keep Wales Tidy, Welsh Government, Heritage Lottery Fund, Local Nature Partnerships and local nature experts.

In 2021-22, priority will be given to projects in urban, deprived areas with little or no access to nature. We’re also really keen to welcome applications from underrepresented groups across Wales.

I need help with my application. What should I do?

If you need support with your application, we have three regional coordinators on hand to support you through the process.
