RHS Small Grant Funding for Scottish Community Gardens

The Royal Horticultural Society has launched the second round of its community fund to help gardeners enhance public spaces in towns, villages and cities across Scotland, awarding £100,000 to Scottish community gardening projects over three years. In 2013, we awarded £30,000 to 17 wide-ranging projects, helping groups to purchase tools, create raised beds and garden spaces, and bringing people together through gardening.
This year, we wish to provide funds to support Scottish groups to start or develop gardening projects within their local community. Groups applying for the fund should be able to demonstrate that their project has a strong horticultural focus and we are particularly interested in projects that demonstrate one or more of the following:
  • Opportunities for people to learn new skills in gardening
  • Development of volunteering opportunities within your local community
  • Involve people from a wide range of different ages and backgrounds
  • Long-lasting benefits to your local community
Groups can apply for two levels of funding; Start-up Grants of up to £300 and Main Grants of up to £3,000. To apply for funding, please download the application form and guidance via the link below:
