The planetary is personal

We recognise that there are many aspects of life that connecting with nature can positively impact, from social to physical to mental to environmental and they are all important in the healing of our planet.

Below are the core focus areas of our work that we strive to elevate in every interaction.

Our Core Aims

Food

One of our key missions is to improve accessibility of local, organic, plastic free food, rich in nutrients and cultivate an appreciation and understanding of where it came from and how amongst city residents. 

How?

We do this through creating spaces for locals to grow their own food and to learn how in practical gardening workshops.

Why?

In 200... the population of cities officially surpassed the population of rural communities across the globe and we have never been more disconnected from our food, the land it was grown from and the people who grew it.

The food we consume in cities is often imported from the other side of the world, ladened with chemicals, highly processed, underpaid for, out of season, or packaged in plastic.

 

Often economic and societal circumstances mean that these local, organic products are unaffordable or unavailable to a large proportion of the population and we are instead forced to knowingly choose lower quality produce from the aisles of supermarkets without knowing the story or value of our food.

 

Additionally many lower income areas across the UK suffer from food poverty - a direct lack of access - a shortage shops selling fresh fruit and veg but rather lots of processed goods.

We want to address this injustice by creating opportunities learn the ways of nature, places to grow food and reconnect with its source.

Did you know vegetables grown today have ...%less nutritional value than those grown ten years ago due to farming methods and depletion of soil health.

People

We have seen first hand a difference in the way people show up to nature events and gardening spaces.

They show up with generosity and gratitude and more open hearts, because they are expecting to meet others with the same.

And the do and so the cycle robustly continues.
