Chatelherault Country Park Education Pack

The Chatelherault Country Park Education Pack was created by South Lanarkshire Council Ranger Service to allow groups and families to enjoy self-led trails and activities within Chatelherault Country Park.

Activities include junior detective trail, seasonal scavenger hunts and quizzes, minibeast worksheets including river dipping guides and a handy map pinpointing where is best at Chatelherault for water, minibeast and woodland studies.

The pack is in black and white and in PDF form so that it can easily be printed out and used as required.

Grow Wild

Supported by the Big Lottery Fund and led by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; Grow Wild inspires communities, friends, neighbours and individuals across the UK to come together to transform local spaces, by sowing, growing and enjoying native wild flowers. We believe that this simple act of creativity can turn spaces into beautiful, inspiring and colourful wildlife havens; encouraging people to care for and delight in the nature around them. Any space can be transformed – from balconies to old boots, streets to shared spaces, boxes to buckets. Anything that will hold soil, water and seeds will do: just let your imagination grow wild. 

Check out the website for information on funding for Community projects and Flagship sites.

Tree Council Grants

The Tree Council's Tree Futures grant scheme offers help for tree planting through two programmes: the Trees for Schools and the Community Trees funds. Any school or community group within the United Kingdom that is planning a project which actively involves children under the age of 16 is encouraged to draw on the fund to plant trees and make a greener future.

The Tree Council's National Tree Week (from 28 November to 6 December in 2015) is the focus for these projects and successful applicants organise their planting events in conjunction with our annual celebration of the new tree planting season.

In addition, we are offering funds for the planting of orchards by schools and community groups through our Orchard Windfalls Fund, first launched for the 2013 planting season.

We are able to fund projects between £100 and £700 and successful applicants will receive up to 75% towards their planting costs. For example, if your project totals £700, The Tree Council would offer up to £525. The remaining 25% will need to be secured by your school or organisation.

With the generous support of an anonymous donor we have been able to produce a Key Stage 1 & 2 teaching and learning resource which will be sent out free of charge to all successful grant applicants. See further information and purchasing details for the Tree Ties CD ROM here.

The Carnegie Trust

The Carnegie Trust has just published a new ‘how to’ guide called ‘Appreciating Assets’. Published with the International Association for Community Development (IACD), it tells the story of the potential of individuals and their communities, using the relatively new language of building on both the human and physical capital or ‘assets’ in a community. In other words, the strengths that are to be found in every individual, group and community.
