    Junior Landcare Grants are back again for a sixth year, offering primary schools and early learning centers a $1,000 grant to engage students in projects to support the environment. With 1,000 grants on offer, this is a fantastic opportunity to set up a brand new project or enhance an existing one.

    Previous grant recipients are welcome to apply again if they have submitted a final report for their previous Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant project. This 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.

    The Woolworths Junior Landcare projects can include 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. If you're not sure what type of project you'd like to do or are looking for resources to help with your application, check out our Top 10 Project Ideas for the Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants here. These project ideas link to our Junior Landcare Learning Centre education resources, which include step-by-step instructions, links to school curriculums, instructional videos, frameworks and Educator Notes. You can visit the Learning Centre here. Since 2018, close to 5,000 primary schools and early learning centres across Australia have received a Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant, with over 400,000 students getting hands-on caring for the environment in their community. Explore our interactive map for brief descriptions and photographs of their projects.
