As a Social Enterprise and a Community Interest Company our main objective is to reduce climate change, we achieve this by educating the next generation in environmental sustainability solutions. Currently we are delivering 4 environmental projects:
School Sustainability VisitsEach school can take up to 420 children on exciting day trips to learn about forestry, biodiversity, energy, food, water, waste and what a sustainable city should look like. They visit a solar farm, a real MRF recycling centre, bell boating down the river with the Wildlife Trust to learn about water conservation, biodiversity and tree planting, they take part in cookery classes on a farm to learn about sustainable farming techniques and finally build a giant sustainable city out of Lego.
Action StationSituated at Stratford upon Avon train station, we are in the process of building a biodiversity educational space, planted by local children. It will provide advice, inspiration and encouragement to local residents and visitors on how they can support wildlife in their own gardens and communities.
Free School Lesson PlansDesigned by teachers, schools have access to free environmental sustainability lesson plans, helping children to understand climate change issues, consolidating their learning from SSSP days and supporting teachers to deliver high quality sustainability lessons that also meet the needs of the curriculum.
The Great Big Bug HutThe Great British Bug Hunt comprises of 3 pollinator plants and a 48 page beautifully illustrated book filled with games, puzzles, and information about how you can support the wildlife in your garde. It was give to 500 vulnerable people isolating alone during the first Covid19 lockdown to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation. It has had great feedback from people who received it, and has now been redesigned for children to learn about biodiversity.
All of the projects raise awareness, inspire, empower and educate those involved, delivering measurable social and environmental impact within the community and the environment.
People are increasingly looking to buy from and work for organisations who take their social responsibility seriously, they enable value led organisations to shine a spotlight on their social and environmental commitment.
