Hi, we are Ekojoe.
It all began with 3 sisters and an idea that we could do our part for the environment and help improve sustainability. We, like so many others are horrified by what is happening to our planet. The devastation caused by limitless production of unnecessary waste aka plastic pollution is reversible and we want to do something about it.
Our concern for the environment inspired us to develop something that would help to cut waste, support sustainable and fair traders and help a broad range of our communities to be actively involved in living lives that supported the environment.
We have sold re-fills from our van, developed into a local order and delivery service all whilst growing our green space community allotment here in Blaby, Leicester.
Our journey continues as we have just recently secured a new larger plot of land to create a green space which we intend to devlop with the help of our volunteers.
We want to develop the space to yield lots of fruit and vegetables for sale at affordble prices from our farmer's kitchen. The green space will bring the local community together, create low impact harvests and give the community access to affordable, healthy foods.
To realise this dream for our local community we need your help.
As a not-for-profit organisation we need some contributions with start up costs for the land - including covering for the ground, growing tunnels and some planning permission costs too.
We would appreciate anything that you can give, big or small!
