Funding Available to get Children Closer to Nature (UK)

Arla Foods UK plc has announced that it is inviting applications for funding through its “Get Closer to Nature” Grants Programme.

Through the programme, grants of up to £1,500 are available to individuals, local community groups and school, etc to enable children to get closer to nature. The type of activities that could be funded can include transforming derelict ground into a beautiful flower garden for the local community to enjoy; clearing an overgrown path to reveal a previously inaccessible area of nature, adding benches to allow everyone to benefit from it; transforming a city centre patch of concrete into a haven for local birds; creating a vegetable patch at your local school to help kids to learn about where food comes from; and bringing just-laid eggs into the city by setting up an urban chicken run.

The closing date for applications is the 4th June 2012.
