The Problem

To create a greater awareness amongst the children about how their actions and choices have an impact on the environment and how in their every day lives they can make a difference. Focusing in particular on waste reduction, recycling and plastics. Helping the children have a greater understanding about the origins of the food they buy in the supermarket and considering the processes undergone for it to arrive on their dinner table.

Our Plan

We have planted 130 fruit trees and have showed the children how to use the fruit they grow to make jams and chutneys. We have planted a native wildflower garden and a butterfly and bee garden with specific flora that attracts local fauna such as honeybees and butterflies to flourish in our area. We have build an eco friendly greenhouse from single use plastic bottles. We have build a frog bog to provide a habitat for our native common frog and natterjack toad as they have suffered a lot of habitat loss.
