Some of you may have heard about the Grow Wild Project already. There is £120,000 up for grabs in a round of funding made available to transform our local spaces into wildlife havens. The funding has been made available by The Big Lottery Fund and Plymouth has been shortlisted to the final five. With its ‘City to Sea’ proposal, the plans are to transform Plymouth from Armada Way to the Hoe.
If Plymouth wins the money it will really transform our local spaces. Watch the video on the Grow Wild Website to see the plans. The idea is to involve the whole community in this project, from start to finish.
- 1000 pupils will be invited to help sow native wild flower seeds and bring the plans to life.
- An orchard will be planted on Armada Way and passers-by will be encouraged to stop and enjoy the fruit
- The site will play host to events that will inspire young people to enjoy nature.
- A scarlet sea of poppies is planned for the Naval Memorial on the Hoe
Please, please, vote for Plymouth so that this vision can become a reality! Voting ends on 4th November and you can vote here
