Charity update - March 2024

Spring is on its way - we're definitely seeing the first signs in parks. It's been four years since a march led by Greta Thunberg started the process of us reimagining College Green. Now, the Daffodils are in full bloom and looking amazing!

Read on to hear about what we've been up to, our latest events and how you can make a difference. We're looking for new Trustees too.

Roots to Wellbeing is providing fantastic mental health benefits to hundreds of people's lives. We're hosting weekly sessions in five parks across Bristol and Bath.

People get stuck into mindfulness, crafts with natural materials and group check ins. We're really pleased that more than one in five people go into employment or volunteering afterwards and nearly 90% feel happier!

This year we're looking at ways we can reach more people and improve health through parks.

Strategy nature

In Bath our Bee Active volunteers have been creating log piles, dead hedges, wildflower meadows, pollinator habitats and planting trees. We worked with volunteers at Henrietta Park to create a stumpery and used a large tree that had to be felled.

We've been transforming Brickfields Park with University of Bath students. We rejuvenated our bug hotel, sewn wildflower seed around the nature pond and cared for the trees.

In Bristol we held a Love Your River event with Bristol Avon Rivers Trust on Valentines Day.

With the WildCats, we're clearing scrubs, coppicing and maintaining paths at Hengrove Mounds, Hawkfield Meadows, Dundry Slopes, Northern Slopes and Stockwood Open Space. We also held a Community Litter Pick at Withywood Park on 17th February.

We've partnered up with Disabled people and carers to create an Accessibility Plan for Hartcliffe Millennium Green in Bristol.

Over the course of three workshops and a park visit, the group came up with lots of ideas for changes and decided together on the most important priorities.

You can find out more about these plans below and watch this space for next steps...
