Westland Horticulture, home to brands such as Big Tom, Boost, Resolva, Unwins, and Kent & Stowe, is excited to announce the New Horizon Fund that will support school gardening projects across the UK and Ireland in 2024.
Is your local school’s outdoor space in need of some love and care to help it thrive? At Westland, we believe everyone deserves to get closer to nature, and we know just how much children benefit from getting outdoors. School gardening projects help to support children’s wellbeing, from being more physically active, enjoying the fresh air, and the feeling of empowerment that stems from nurturing a garden and watching it thrive.
Gardening also taps into all children’s senses, from the abundance of colour that gardening can bring, the scents of flowers, the texture of different soils and plants, to even the taste of homegrown fruits and vegetables.
A school garden offers teachers a wonderful location to educate children on a variety of subjects, and Westland wants all young people to have the opportunity to reap the benefits of getting outdoors and stuck into gardening.
The New Horizon Fund aims to create a greener future for all, and will support community garden projects, from schools, allotments, hospices, and care homes, across the UK and Ireland. Each prize will comprise of a collection of gardening essentials from Westland, from compost, seeds, tools, plant feed, and much more, to the value of £1,000. Each prize bundle will be individually created based on the project’s needs to them transform their space.
