Supported by UnLtd, Dream Green has provided 11 Grey2Green micro-grants to individuals and communities with which to transform neglected corners of their neighbourhoods into lasting pockets of plant life.
As well as financial support, we provided tailored one-to-one guidance on garden design, plant choices, community building, and communications, depending on need.
Among the incredible outcomes, successful applicants used their grant funding to create and improve:
A patient co-designed garden outside an NHS surgery
A no-dig vegetable patch by Lewes F.C.'s football pitch
An edible and medicinal herb garden along a canal path
Flower planters for a council estate gardening group
A vertical garden in a nature-devoid residential street
A medicinal and culinary garden outside a "tool library"
A "community healing garden" beside a busy junction
A pollinator-friendly parklet, complete with benches
We're hoping to provide more financial and practical support to grassroots greening initiatives in 2023, and are currently applying for funding to make this possible.
