We are very excited to announce further support for our project. Plant Paradise has received the Ideas and Pioneers grant, provided by Paul Hamlyn Foundation. This will be a huge boost to our efforts to create the Plant Paradise platform. We aim to provide a platform where volunteers can find local planting projects, and organisations can advertise their events easily.
Paul Hamlyn Foundation
Paul Hamlyn Foundation (PHF) was established by Paul Hamlyn in 1987. He died in 2001 and left most of his estate to the Foundation, creating one of the largest independent grant-making foundations in the UK. PHF use their resources to support social change, working towards a just and equitable society in which everyone, especially young people, can realise their full potential and enjoy fulfilling and creative lives.
Our next steps
This means we can start making fast progress on developing the Plant Paradise platform. We will be focusing on organisations in Scotland, starting with trial events with the Three Hares Community Woodland. We will be announcing other events via our Facebook page, where you may be able to help.
