The Calder Valley is already home to a number of established organisations and businesses that actively work with the community to lay the foundations for a more creative, innovative, and environmentally sustainable future. Over the years, we've seen organisations such as Treesponsibility, Calder Future, Slow the Flow, Straw Works, LiveWild, Handmade Parade, Creative with Nature, and Incredible Edible bring about a lot of positive changes in the local environment and people’s attitude towards each other, our community, and the world we live in. We endeavour to work in harmony with these organisations and contribute further towards a greener and more sustainable future by creating a community hub to educate the public about practices that can help to protect the environment and sustain its natural resources for current and future generations.
As an organisation that aims to be very inclusive, we are very fortunate to be situated in the Calder Valley, where there is a rich cultural and ethnic diversity. We would like to provide a positive learning and working environment for people of all backgrounds, and do what we can to support and collaborate with organisations that work with vulnerable people in our community.
Can I volunteer?
Yes, we work with volunteers throughout the year, and can offer volunteering opportunities in a number of areas - from seed collection to tree planting and wildlife habitat creation. We strive to work with the local community as much as possible, in order to grow and plant trees locally, create a greater awareness of reforestation and natural flood management, and hopefully get more people excited about planting trees!

Please note that, since a lot of our work is seasonal, the amount of volunteers that we need varies. We may send you details of volunteering opportunities with Treesponsibility, if we don’t have anything to offer you at the moment.
