Help to tackle the growing number of grey spaces and turn them into beautiful green places
This year we're transforming bleak grey spaces into great green places, using plants, community action and ethusiasm. Join dozens of schools and community groups and green the grey where you live into 2018.
Simple: transform a grey space in your community with plants. It could be an empty concrete corner, an ugly alleyway or a boring stretch of tarmac that would benefit from new planting. Or it could be a green space that you improve for wildlife by adding more nectar and pollen-rich plants.
Have a look at our activity ideas for inspiration.
If you are working on land that does not belong to you, always ensure you have permission from whoever owns the land before you start work. And if you’ve identified a run-down space to transform, please consider any existing flora or fauna on the site and whether this should be protected. If you are unsure, consult your local Wildlife Trust for advice. Please also ensure that you have the landowner’s permission to work on the site.

There are thousands of Britain in Bloom community groups already greening their towns, villages and cities across the UK. And nearly 30,000 schools take part in the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, transforming their school grounds and inspiring the next generation.
They’re always looking for new volunteers. If you’d like to join them, search our map to find your local group or you could set up a group of your own.
Gardens play a crucial role in urban and suburban areas, from helping to protect us against flooding and extremes of temperature, to supporting wildlife and human health.
