In order to make the culture and heritage of co-operation more impactful for local people, we empower them to learn new skills, meet and work with one another to put the values and principles of the Pioneers into action.
We believe that when people work together they can achieve long lasting change.
In 2019 we are working on a community growing project in partnership with Incredible Edible. We want to transform planters and urban green spaces into places where residents living within walking distance of Toad Lane can learn about growing food. They can take pride in the way their town centre looks and feels as well as contribute to food sharing schemes which benefit those on reduced incomes.
All our seeds and equipment is sourced from local companies and individuals who have contributed a small amount towards keeping the scheme going and encouraging new residents to join.
