Bristol needs your vote to secure £120,000 Big Lottery grant to ‘Grow Wild’


Bristol needs your vote! The ‘People’s Plant Project’, is in the running to win a £120,000 grant to transform the city; bringing a flowerbed of colour to the Cumberland Piazza and providing the Bristol community with some of the UK’s rarest native plants to be displayed via ‘pop up’ gardens around the city.

Bristol is up against four other cities across the UK in the Grow Wild competition. Bristol’s project, The People’s Plant Collection is all about transforming dull, abandoned areas into vibrant, colourful wild flower spaces that communities across our wonderful city can enjoy. You can read more about our campaign at:

Bristol Zoo and Bristol City Council  will work with the local community to grow native plants at the Cumberland Piazza and will help with our skatespot and pillar painting.
