How the Mrs Wheelbarrow Grant works

The Mrs Wheelbarrow Grant will give a maximum of £1,000 to put towards a school garden. It includes the help and guidance of a Mrs Wheelbarrow who will visit to help put your ideas into practice and provide guidance when you need it most.

This could be up to four times in the year and could include a site visit to help plan, position and cost your garden with some simple design suggestions. Or, it could be in the form of a practical workshop for a class or gardening club during the growing season to get your garden up and running. It could be a combination of both. The choice is yours so we can support your school gardening over a year in a way that helps you most.

How to apply

This is a straightforward process, with one A4 sheet to explain what you are planning, how the school will benefit and how you will put the ideas into practice. The application will be assessed by a panel of judges. The application form will be available at the beginning of September; deadline for application is the end October half term with the results and grant made available at the start of January term.

An application form for the 2017 Award will be downloadable here from 1st September 2017.
