We teamed up with Shared Earth Learning this month to host a staff/volunteer/trustee team day at Vallis Veg, the home of many of Shared Earth’s projects! It was the perfect autumnal day for putting on our gardening gloves, breathing in the fresh air and getting back to nature!
All 3 managers, 4 of our volunteers and 3 trustees joined one of Shared Earth’s directors, Jen, to make compost boxes out of old pallets, a leaf mulcher and getting beds ready by doing lots of weeding!
A huge thanks to our wonderful operations and marketing manager, Jess, who organised the day, making some very yummy leek and potato soup, which we heated up on an open fire!
A little more about Shared Earth Learning Co-op, they are a charity that aims to nurture love of nature! They offer a range of projects, such as Forest School, helping kids learn using the outdoors, Play Ranging, bringing outdoor fun to kids in Frome, gardening groups for teens and adults and much more.
They will be hosting a Pumpkin Day and Harvest Swap on the 30th October, with a range of fun activities for all ages! See what other events they currently have on here.
