National Gardening Week Campaign Kicks Off


Dear Bloom and It’s Your Neighbourhood groups,

Next week we’ll kick-off the UK-wide Bloom campaign during National Gardening Week (11 – 17 April) and we hope you’ll join in!

This year’s Bloom theme is Greening Grey Britain for Health and Happiness and anyone can get involved by organising a gardening activity to boost local health and wellbeing. You might be using gardening to reduce social exclusion, planting new herb or vegetable patches or simply bringing people together for some healthy outdoor activity. Whatever activity you choose, and whether your activity takes place during the week itself or later in the spring, make sure you spread the word about what you’re doing.

Activity ideas Visit the RHS website for ideas about the kind of things you could do.

Publicise your event We’ve created a press release and poster template to help you publicise your activity. Just over-write these with your event details and email to your media contacts or print off posters to put up locally.

Don’t forget social media If you’re on social media, share your stories with #ourbloom #greeninggreybritain so that we can pick them up and share them here.

Send us your stories and photos! Please share your event pictures and stories with us - just send them to communities@rhs.org.uk. We will share as many as we can across RHS social media and publications like Grass Roots.

This year the RHS will provide direct hands-on support to nearly 40 Bloom and It’s Your Neighbourhood groups, selected from the recent applications sent in. We will share their stories with you throughout the year in Grass Roots.

Should you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at:

Happy greening!
