Junior Landcare Grants are now open

With students and teachers back at school, Woolworths and Junior Landcare are teaming up again to give thousands of children an opportunity to get hands-on with projects that focus on sustainable food production, improving waste management practices and enhancing habitats.

Australian primary schools and early learning centres are invited to apply for a Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant. With up to 1,000 grants on offer, this is the largest number of Junior Landcare Grants ever given out in a single round.

This year, in addition to grants of up to $1000 each available, since bees and pollinators are so important to our environment, Junior Landcare Grants are offering extra funding of up to $500 for projects that have a bee component. If your school is ready to grow the next generation of environmental champions, Junior Landcare encourages you to apply for a Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant for:

● a habitat restoration project ● planting a bush tucker garden ● planting a vegetable garden ● running a composting or recycling project Age Groups:0-7 | 7-13
