What has Grow Wild achieved so far?
Since 2013, over four million people have joined Grow Wild online and on the ground. We’ve won multiple national awards for our scale, impact and creativity.
Children, young people and adults across the UK have achieved positive behavioural change for the environment after leading their own Grow Wild activities, as shown by independent evaluation.
Together, we’ve delivered new appreciation for UK native plants and fungi through growing and sharing, plus new community and wellbeing benefits. This impact is lasting, with most people attributing Grow Wild as their catalyst for taking more positive actions years after taking part.
Overall, 95 per cent of participants would recommend Grow Wild activities.
Grow Wild was publicly voted the UK’s Best Environment Project in the National Lottery Awards on BBC1. The team has also built intellectual and digital assets and engaged community networks.
