We are currently a small group of volunteers who live in the Parish and are setting up as a charity. We want to work with others in local community to make our area a better place to live, a better place for nature and help in efforts to achieve net zero carbon. We are delighted that St Ive Parish Church has given us access to the Glebe Fields for our first major project.
We aim to create a place:
*Where local people and nature can flourish together.
* To sit, relax and watch the world go by.
* That encourages wildlife and biodiversity.
* To have fun and get good exercise planting and caring for fruit and nut trees, growing herbs, vegetables and other useful plants.
* To make friends, learn new skills or share old ones.
* Where we share local produce that has been grown without harm to the environment and has not travelled miles to get to you.
* That is a step towards making our environment and community more resilient for yourself, your family and future generations to come.
Facilities: Volunteering, Play area, Wildlife area, Sustainable/Green building on site
