SF&G have partnered with sustainable coffee brand GRINDto offer three grants of £1,300 each to support composting activities in community gardens.
Grind has just launched the UK’s first home compostable coffee pod, certified to decompose in home compost in just 180 days (quicker than grass cuttings!). To celebrate this launch, Grind wants to support local communities in the UK to get more in tune with their garden and home composting, in a bid to stop the 29,000 coffee pods that end up in landfill each minute.
We're looking for three gardens, anywhere in the UK. Each winning garden will also receive a day's consultancy support from a composting guru from the Composting in the Community Network to really give their new initiative a boost.
All eligible applicants will be assessed on how strongly they demonstrate their ability to support messages of composting and helping the community to be more sustainable through this initiative.

SF&G are delighted that we are once again partnering with the Hilden Charitable Fund to award Children’s Summer Activity Grants to our members, helping to get children learning and playing in nature this summer.
In 2021 we supported 18 groups with grants of £1,500 each. This provided around 200 sessions over the summer for more than 700 children and their families, with a huge range of activities taking place including bug hunting, seed planting, orienteering, bush-crafts, and outdoor cooking sessions.
This year we will be distributing £34,000 in grants of up to £1,500 each to support activities that will engage children and young people with nature in July and August 2022.
