Applications are still open for Local Places for Nature.

  Communities are being encouraged to apply for free garden packages as part of the Local Places for Nature scheme.

 The next deadline for applications is 31 August.

 Keep Wales Tidy, the charity supporting a clean and safe Welsh environment, has got hundreds of free garden packages to give away to community groups and organisations. To make it as easy as possible for people to get involved, they have designed a choice of tailored packages. From small fruit and wildlife gardens, to more ambitious food growing areas and drainage projects.  Each free package includes native plants, tools and other materials. Keep Wales Tidy will handle the orders and deliveries, and their project officers will even provide support on the ground to help you create your new nature space.

Check out our map here to see the sites that have already been chosen.

Applying is quick and easy, just go to www.keepwalestidy.cymru/nature, pick your package and fill out the online form. The next deadline for applications is 31 August.
