The Big Green Shropshire Gathering

Following on from the highly successful first event in 2013 when we were joined by more than 80 delegates, the second Big Green Shropshire Gathering will take place on Saturday 25th April 2015 at Shropshire Wildlife Trust’s Visitor Centre, Abbey Foregate. Shrewsbury from 9.30am until 4.00pm.  This year’s programme is covering two major environmental and climate change issues:  Sustainable Farming: “How can UK food production be more sustainable?”  and Sustainable Housing: “How do we build affordable, energy efficient houses that are fit to live in?”

We are delighted to welcome local and national speakers:  Charlotte Hollins, Fordhall Farm and Tim Bevan, Soil Association, speaking on sustainable farming and Paul Sutton, Shropshire Housing Group and Jonathan Hines, Architype, speaking on sustainable housing.

A variety of stalls showcasing green projects and businesses from across the county will be present, and local Shrewsbury business, EAT UP will provide refreshments on the day.  It has been organised by Green Shropshire Xchange whose aim is to provide a forum for environmentally minded organisations in Shropshire.

The event is FREE, but please register in advance simply by emailing: [email protected]
