Green City Action needs your help

Green City Action feature

After a tough year Green City Action are calling on the local community for their support. They have plenty of ideas to develop local environmental and community projects but they need to build their capacity and financial situation. They are looking for trustees and other interested parties and volunteers to get involved, particularly from the local community, in steering the organisation forward.

Posting on Facebook, Green City Action say:

“Over the years GCA has delivered a wide variety of green projects in Burngreave and surrounding areas, from improving local green spaces , to involving the local community and schools in food growing, delivering environmental education and events, enabling tool, toy, skill and seed sharing and so much more. At GCA we are full of ideas and enthusiasm for environmental projects but currently lack the funding and capacity to deliver more.

“Like a lot of community organisations GCA has suffered over the last 18 months and is now in a difficult post Covid recovery phase. We lost our coordinator, tool bank worker, volunteers and several trustees over the last 18 months, which has had an enormous impact on our ability to move forward . We have been successful in raising funds to keep our allotment food growing project running but have had to close our community tool bank for now due to lack of funds.

“We have loads of ideas to develop projects to enrich our environment and the community as a whole but crucially we need to build our capacity and financial situation to deliver these initiatives. We are looking for trustees and other interested parties and volunteers to get involved, particularly from the local community, in steering the organisation forward, to help with funding and capacity building and volunteering going forward. Join us in making things happen!”
