We are proud to be supporting the new Barleythorpe Community Trust which is being launched this month.
We have worked with members of the Barleythorpe community for the last few years as part of our New Landscapes: New Communities programme. The programme aims to create skills and experience in managing land sustainably for people involved in the management of open spaces on new housing developments.
The partnership between the Sustainable Land Trust and the Barleythorpe Community Trust will create opportunities for people living within Barleythorpe to access training and support to become Barleythorpe rangers. The rangers will help to manage the landscapes, create community events, and develop their own volunteer group.
More to follow over the next few months….!
