Grants for Groups to Garden in North of England
The North of England Horticultural Society (NEHS) has launched a new £20,000 grants programme for community groups in the North of England.
Manchester-based voluntary and community groups and organisations may apply for grants of between £100 and £2,000 to support gardening projects and activities in the community.
The NEHS, organiser of the Harrogate Flower Shows, is a leading gardening charity that was founded in 1911. It currently supports more than 50 garden-related organisations, and the grant scheme is an extension of the charity’s mission to promote horticulture across the north of England.
North of England Horticultural Society Show Director, Martin Fish said:
“The proceeds from our annual spring and autumn Harrogate Flower Shows have always gone back to the charity to re-invest in horticulture…. our 2011 Centenary Year was one of the best on record, and that has enabled us to offer additional funding of up to £20,000 for community work in 2012.”
There will be two rounds of funding in 2012. The closing date for the first round of funding is 31 July 2012.
