Second year of Local School Nature Grants Scheme
What do birdboxes, seeds, den making kits and nature experts all have in common? They are all available free to schools as part of the Local School Nature Grants Programme, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
The grants provide £500 of nature equipment and 2 hours of training to schools in England, Scotland and Wales. The packages are customisable, enabling schools to choose from a menu of items which best suit their learners and their setting.
For example, schools looking to start growing food or develop their school gardens can select Garden Organic‘s Get Growing kit to receive seeds, growing cards, a term time garden planner and more.
Launched on 21 March 2018, this second phase of the scheme builds on the huge success of phase one, which bought benefit to 300 schools and over 20,000 pupils in 2017.
The project is funded by Postcode Local Trust, which receives funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
