Celyn / Kew Gardens

Celyn worked with Kew Gardens again on their £10.5m Grow Wild Scheme to bring people and communities together to sow, grow and support UK native wild flowers. The Grow Wild Scheme encourages people to get together to transform unloved urban sites into wildlife-friendly wild flower patches.

For the second phase of the campaign, Kew Gardens and The Big Lottery Fund are looking for people to nominate a project in their community aimed at transforming an unloved or neglected site, particularly in urban areas, to receive funding from Grow Wild. They are going to create four inspirational Grow Wild sites one each in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The winning site will receive £120,000 to create an inspiring green space using UK native plants.

Grow Wild

Celyn has been busy over the past few months working with Kew Gardens on their Grow Wild Scheme. Celyn was commissioned to create a wide range of illustrations to accompany the campaign.

The Grow Wild Scheme is an exciting four year campaign to bring people together to sow UK native wild flowers. The purpose of the scheme is to transform where we live; bringing colour and surprise to our streets and turning gardens and windowsills into wildlife-friendly wild flower patches.

Grow Wild is funded by a £10.5 million pound grant from the Big Lottery Fund and led by the Royal Botanic Gardens. From spring 2014, Grow Wild will: distribute one million seed-sowing kits across the UK; create four flagship sites – one each in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and create 160 smaller community engagement sites across the country.
