The Food Forest Project:
We are a small grass roots ‘Not for Profit’that works with local communities to plant food forests. We do this to heal intensively used areas of land and create much needed habitat for declining species, but also to help combat chronic loneliness within communities, and help bring local people closer together in a safe space. These spaces remain open for all that wish to use them and benefit from the food that they produce.
We are about to embark on a food forest project in Shepton Mallet, in Somerset, working with the “Safe Collective” (supporting children and young people in crisis)
helping to reconnect vulnerable young people with their environment whilst building much needed self-confidence and helping them to gain practical skills and knowledge.
The plot needs fencing off with timber post, rail and wire fencing. As a small Not for Profit orginisation we rely completely on the generosity of individuals that share our values. Therefore, we have come to Go Fund Me to fund for the materials required to build our fence.
We thank you in advance for any support that you may be able to give, and hope that you may visit our web site to follow the progress of the project and other project that we will be running.
