Roots & Shoots partners with Grow Wild!!

Where will your seed kit take your schools?

Apply now to transform a shared unloved space!

The Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots programme is supporting Grow Wild to change lives and transform spaces with UK native wildflowers. It is the biggest initiative of its kind and your school can be a part of it!

Your school group is invited to find an unloved space and turn it into a colourful wildflower haven for everyone to enjoy and benefit from.

You don’t need growing experience; Grow Wild will provide the guidance and resources you need to help your students get involved!

Apply Now using the online form. Or visit the Grow Wild website to find out more.

Making an even bigger difference in 2018

This year, Grow Wild is asking people to share the ‘before’ pictures of their space: to see and celebrate how UK native wildflowers can turn grey into green, red, blue and all the colours of nature.

And by creating these pockets of wild beauty with your students, you will be contributing to their wellbeing too.

Applications close at the end of February and Grow Wild will let you know if your application is successful a few days later in time for the sowing season.

So, hurry up and get your Grow Wild kit now! We look forward to seeing the beauty you can create!

With thanks,

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots & the Grow Wild team

What’s in the Grow Wild seed kit?

  • Successful applicants will receive an ‘essential’ seed kit, which has extra help and guidance on planning and realising your transformation project.
  • Successful applicants will also receive one, two or three ‘participant’ kits, depending on how many people you expect to be part of the project. These kits have extra seeds and other resources to engage more children.
  • Wildflower seeds native to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that have been tested by the scientists at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
  • Lots of ideas on how to involve the children in your transformation project and keep them engaged.
