£100k grant for Botanics

Have your say

The Royal Botanic Garden has been awarded a £100,000 grant from the People’s Postcode Lottery.

The cash will fund the next stage of the the Edible Garden project, which encourages people to grow their own vegetables and fruit.

Ian Edwards, head of exhibitions at the gardens, said: “This is excellent news. In the two years since the Edible Garden project has been running it has been possible to see a real change in people’s lives.”
