Windsor Park School for deaf students are looking for a Garden Buddy to help in the process of redesigning their garden and help teach their community tips for growing food sustainably.
Forth Environment Link (FEL) works with communities and partners across Forth Valley on environmental and food issues. Covering the local authority areas of Stirling, Clackmannanshire and Falkirk, FEL combines environmental education and awareness with project support through the Stirling Cycle Hub; Grow Forth, local food initiative; Forth Valley Orchards programme and the Zero Waste Communities project. FEL began in 1989 with the aim of teaching children about biodiversity and nature. In response to community need and interest, the organisation grew in both mandate and geography, expanding to include adult education and demonstration projects. 2008 Forth Valley Food Links merged with FEL, bringing an additional focus on sustainable local food production and consumption. In 2013 Stirling Cycle Hub was formed to increase awareness and participation in cycling and cycling related activities in the area.
Experience required: An aptitude for community building, at least some experience gardening, and a posititve outlook! We want this project to be inclusive to all.
