Spring into Action

This last year has taught us a lot - it's shone a light on what's really important and shown the power of collective change, kindness and support. As restrictions are lifting, buds are blooming and parks are filling, we want to continue this spirit of coming together and taking action.

Whether it’s sharing more with neighbours, helping out your local community fridge, transforming an unused space or getting growing – now’s the time to spring into action and make our local areas cleaner, greener and healthier. Let’s plant, cook, make and take action together, as friends, families and communities.
