Growing Green Spaces

Programme management & strategic advice for “grassroots” initiative offering funding and advice to community groups enhancing green spaces across York

Growing Green Spaces is an initiative designed to beautify, enhance, and sustain York’s green spaces by growing and supporting green volunteering across the city. It funds innovative and creative projects that are designed to attract and develop the skills of a diverse range of volunteers and tap into green spaces’ potential to improve biodiversity, health, and wellbeing.

The project has a strong focus on York’s existing green spaces and their horticultural value and but also projects that will enhance neglected spaces. ​
