Fundraising for Give it a Grow Wigan

We need your help! Give it a Grow Wigan are fundraising. We've achieved so much this year, and we'd like to continue our work.
 
In spring, we gave out 752 native packs of wildflower seeds to residents, community groups, schools and more, creating over 1.5km sq of new wildflower meadow.
 
We transformed the border of a car park with some amazing neighbours in Tyldesley, we built a wildlife pond and meadow in Beech Hill, started a meadow in Atherton Cemetry, and recently we gave out over 200 bulbs to help provide people with some spring colour, and pollinators with early blooms. We have many more projects in the pipeline, including an orchard!
 
We've done a lot with the donations we've received so far, and we also have self-funded the group to keep progress going. We are so very grateful to everyone who has supported us with donations or given their time.
 
We're organising this fundraiser so that we can continue our work. The funds are for plants, seeds, soil and tools.
 
With these, we can grow a lot more pesticide and herbicide-free plants, carefully chosen and grown with pollinators and wildlife in mind. They will be planted out and distributed all over the borough.
 
We have a new growing hub in Wigan Centre that we're in the process of clearing, reading for planting; there is loads of potential for the site!
 
 
 
 
We'll also be working more with residents across the borough to see how we can transform alleys around the borough to create beautiful community green spaces.
 
We appreciate your help so much!
