2021 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants
Growing the next generation of environmental champions
In early 2021, as part of its ongoing commitment to a greener future, Woolworths in partnership with Landcare Australia, opened our third round of Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants.
Open to primary schools and early learning centres across Australia, Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants aim to inspire kids with hands-on projects focusing on sustainable food production, improving waste management practices and enhancing native habitats.
Since bees and pollinators are so important to our environment, in addition to grants of up to $1000 each, applicants were offered extra funding of up to $500 for projects that support bees.
It was anticipated that up to 1,000 grants would be awarded. However, because of the massive number of high calibre applications received, Woolworths generously funded 1,609 Australian primary schools and early learning centres with grants of up to $1,000, with 1,021 of them also receiving up to $500 for a bee bonus.
This is the largest number of Junior Landcare Grants ever given out in a single round.
Combined with the 2018 and 2019 grant rounds, a total of 2,724 schools and early learning centres across the country have received Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants.
This means that more than 200,000 Australian students are getting hands-on in caring for the environment, helping grow the next generation of environmental champions.

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.
