Lemos&Crane and The City of Corporation’s charity, The City Bridge Trust, are seeking entrants for The City of Growing Localities 2016.

The awards are open to non-profit organisations based in any London borough that use nature to enhance the lives of local citizens, as well as communities. They offer a total of £5,000 in prize money.

The entry deadline is 22nd April. A shortlist will be revealed at the end of May, and the winners announced at an event in the summer.

The themes for 2016 are:

  • Nature and inclusion for people with physical and other disabilities
  • Innovative projects in schools for children and young people
  • Community projects focused on sustainable horticulture.
