GARDENS FOR RICHMOND SCHOOLS

GARDENS FOR RICHMOND SCHOOLS

About the Campaign
The Bloom community group, which has run gardening competitions in the borough for over 25 years, has always sought ways of encouraging children’s interest in their natural environment and previously made gardening grants to 52 borough schools.

The scheme proved highly successful and Richmond Borough in Bloom would like to re-start it. Past grants were used for such works as creating raised borders for vegetables, providing a compost site and a wormery, digging out a pond to establish wildlife and planting a sensory area of plants and shrubs.

Given public support, schools will be able to apply in any term for a grant up to £250 to help meet the cost of plants or equipment. For some, it provides the encouragement to make a start on gardening while for others it will assist in the development of new projects planned. Creating gardens in schools will help build, in kids, a life-time appreciation of our natural environment and a will to care for it. With your help we will be able to start up this great scheme again.

GARDENS FOR RICHMOND SCHOOLS
Richmond Borough in Bloom are seeking help to restart their ‘gardening grants for schools’ scheme which proved popular when launched to Borough schools five years ago…. but the money has run out. Please help us to encourage children to care for nature by giving to our fund which will provide small grants to teachers that enable them to create gardening and wildlife projects in their schools.
