RHS looks to support dozens of community gardening projects across the UK in 2018 - focussing on greening grey areas
Is there a grey space in your community that you’d love to transform into a green space for people and the environment?
Do you have a community garden idea that could bridge the generation gap?
Like you, we want to inspire the next generation to grow!
That’s why we’re continuing to connect our experienced Bloomers and community gardeners with young green thumbs as part of Greening Grey Britain.
In 2018, the RHS is offering a number of groups some expert hands-on support, plus up to £500 worth of plants and materials - to help communities bring their green visions to life.
Imagine dull tarmacked corners reborn as vibrant colourful pockets, drab alleyways made lush and green, or a disused unloved area reborn as a productive garden. We want to hear your bold plans to 'green the grey' where you live!
Groups must take part in Britain in Bloom (either at a regional or national level), It’s Your Neighbourhood, be a registered RHS Affiliated Society or part of the RHS Campaign for School Gardening. Projects must be partnership based and intergenerational, so applications should demonstrate how young people will be involved and who else will be taking part.
This year we're asking applicants to show how their transformations would fit in with at least one of the following four garden themes. If your project idea addresses more than one of these, please describe the links and detail of how it would work:
Want to solve another problem in your community through the power of plants? Tell us about it!

The RHS would like to thank M&G Investments, sponsor of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, for its support of this programme.
