- Irrigation systems for polytunnels, greenhouses and growing beds to reduce watering pressure in summer months

- Installation of water butts on existing buildings/structures

- Building of structures (e.g. timber framed shelters) to capture water and to provide shelter to pot up plants and run activities.

- Purchase of a new polytunnel and movement and repair of an existing polytunnel

... and associated communication aspects e.g. information boards

The deadline to apply is Tuesday 2nd November. Please email us if you have any questions about the application process.
