Local students are set to get a kick-start in becoming future environmental champions, with schools in the region given the chance to share in $1million through the 2022 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants.

Woolworths will offer local schools and early learning centres, up to $1,000 each, to develop projects that focus on sustainable food production, improving waste management practices or enhancing native habitats. 

Since 2018, a total of 2,274 primary schools and early education centres across Australia received Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants, with approximately 200,000 students getting hands-on caring for the environment. 

If your school is ready to grow the next generation of environmental champions, you are encouraged 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

The Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants program is funded with a 10c contribution from each sale of the Woolworths Bag for Good at full price. Bag for Good was launched in 2018 when Woolworths went single-use plastic bag free.

Applications for the 2022 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants are open now and close 18 March 2022. To find out more about the Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants Program and to apply, visit landcareaustralia.org.au/woolworthsgrants
