2021 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants
Help us grow the next generation of environmental champions
We’re offering 1,000 grants of up to $1,000 each
Applications are now open for Australian primary schools and early learning centres to apply for a Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant. With up to 1,000 grants on offer, this is the largest number of Junior Landcare Grants we’ve ever given out in a single round.
These grants, of up to $1,000 each, inspire kids from across the country to get hands-on with projects that focus on sustainable food production, improving waste management practices or enhancing native habitats.
In 2018 and 2019, a total of 1,155 primary schools and early education centres across Australia received Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants, with more than 100,000 students getting hands-on caring for the environment. Our interactive map provides a brief description and photographs of their projects. See case studies about projects from previous Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant recipients.
If your school is ready to grow the next generation of environmental champions, we encourage you 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
Since bees and pollinators are so important to our environment, we’re offering extra funding of up to $500 for projects that have a bee related component. This could include building and installing a native beehive, creating pollinator gardens featuring plants that attract bees, pollinator education programs, etc.
In June 2018, Woolworths phased out the use of single-use plastic bags across all stores nationally, launching their reusable Woolworths Bag for good™. The Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants program is funded from 10 cents from the sale of each bag.
