  1. Hi Jess,
    To avoid disappointment in applying, you should point out that only park user groups, nature reserves, allotment committees and community gardens that are ‘constituted groups’ on Council owned grounds can apply to the ‘Greening Fund’.
    Non-constituted groups [as with our park user group at Ravensbourne Park Gardens, SE6] cannot apply.

    1. Hi Austen,

      This is the Mayor of London’s ‘Greener City Fund’ and not Lewisham’s Greening Fund. The Terms and Conditions might be different for their fund, I don’t know what conditions they have set. I am not sure if groups need to be constituted for this fund, so it would be worth checking the website to see if Ravensbourne Park Gardens is eligible.

      Best wishes,

      Jess
