Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants now open

by Freya Lucas

February 20, 2024

The Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants program is now open for 2024, offering 1,000 grants of up to $1,000 each to support children from early learning and primary education facilities around the country to engage in projects that support the environment. 


Since 2018, the Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants have engaged over 400,000 students and supported close to 5,000 schools and early learning centres to help grow the next generation of environmental champions.


The Grants program gives children across the country an opportunity to get hands-on with environmental and sustainability projects, learn new skills and knowledge, connect with their peers and enjoy the wellbeing benefits of time spent outdoors in nature.   


Previous projects have included planting a vegetable or bush tucker garden, creating a sensory garden or a butterfly garden, installing a yarning circle to learn more about First Nations perspectives, or tackling waste issues through a composting or recycling project.


A list of the Top 10 Woolworths Junior Landcare Project Ideas has been prepared to offer inspiration and ideas to applicants, and further information is available via the Junior Landcare Learning Centre.


Applicants can also watch the 2024 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant Information Session for tips on how to make their application stand out and help answer any questions you may have.

Applications close 5pm AEDT, 15 March. Learn more or register here.
