Special Award from Kingstanding Food Community

We were pleased to announce at the KFC leaving party, our course leader Stephanie Adelaar was given a special award for her contributions to the project by the director of Forest Schools Birmingham, Afric Crossan.


The event was primarily a celebration of the volunteers and staff (one of whom is our main course leader Alan Bale) who worked on the project over the last three years. The project is now sadly closing, but the volunteers are determined to continue on with the community spirit and work they have developed to date. If you wish to show your support for this project you can do so by simply visiting the aviva community page for Kingstanding Food Community and registering your vote for thier project. Any and all votes would be much appreciated and help to continue the project onwards into the future.


Volunteer Work for “Trees for Cities”

Today, sustainable life course leader Stephanie Adelaar took a trip down to her old haunt Walmley to help plant trees. Working with Kingstanding Food Community, Forest Schools Birmingham and Trees for Cities we helped to plant up over 50 meters with two lines of small trees packed together to form a mixed wood bush including hawthorns and sloes.


We got quite a lot done despite some set backs (lack of a coffee shop, rain etc). For more information check out their website.
