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
