How would you like to get involved with a project to plant wild flowers and plants in Buckingham?

The Edible Woodland Group, which has already started establishing an edible woodland in the Heartlands, is now looking for people to get stuck into a new scheme.

Lets Grow Wild is a national initiative that gives money and support for people wanting to plant wild local plants.

John Mortimer, of the Edible Woodland Group, said: “It would be great if a small group wanted to do this in Buckingham. ”

Let’s Grow Wild is offering grants to groups to spend it on growing local wild plants for the community.

John added: “Let’s Grow Wild is offering money and support for developing a project, and we have the ideal conditions here already in Buckingham.

“We have already been allocated space in a public park and are creating the Edible Woodland.

“So why not do something a little different and consider growing with a difference?

“It’s different to an allotment, and its much more fun to work with a group of like-minded people.

“And there is lots of room for a group to develop a wild native plant area.

“You will get funding, a website, support, insurance, the organisational structure is already in place. The hard work is already done.

“You could be young, old, stressed at work, bored – you just need the will to want to try something. No previous experience in growing is required.

“Who wants to create this mini project in Buckingham, and take your own ideas and creativity forward?

“If you are interested, please let me know and I can help work on the plans and application form.”
