No time to plan green activities for your school or group?
Do you want to get involved in environmental awareness campaigns?
Would you like more curriculum enrichment activities?
We can help! Carrie, who leads the Green School sessions, is a WSCC Waste Prevention Advisor, trained by Al Gore as a Climate Reality Leader, RHS School Gardening trained and is an Eco School Assessor. She has won many awards for her inspirational green work, the latest being the BBC Surrey and Sussex Community Hero Green Champion.
We have themed, age-appropriate green days and workshops which we can
bring to your school, college or group.
Perhaps you could book a session to coincide with an environmental awareness week or day, such as:
National Gardening Week – Earth Day – Compost Awareness Week - European Clean up days – National Walk to School Week – World Environment Day National School Grounds Week – Clean up the World Weekend – Recycle Week – Zero Waste Week – Waste Less, Live More
Through games, activities and workshops the children learn about the synergies between environmental protection, biodiversity, upcycling, recycling, gardening, and healthy eating and environmental conservation. Here are a few of the sessions we offer:
- Recycling and the environmental benefits
- Food waste – composting, including Green Johannas and Green Cones
- The upcycled vegetable garden
- Art from waste
- Learn the art of sewing, remaking, redesign and repair
- Grow your own revolution
- Love your planet and atmosphere
- An ideal future – expectations and hopes
- Energy matters
- Biomimicry – humans copying nature
- Harnessing the power of the sun – solar science
We also offer workshops and CPD sessions for teachers, teaching assistants and children’s group staff. Learn more about these sessions and the workshops we delivered at the South Downs National Park Authority – Our South Downs Teachers’ Conference here.
“This was an amazing day for us all at Chichester Free School. The children have enjoyed learning about ways of reducing waste and recycling and reusing what waste we do create. Taking part in this competition has firmly put waste reduction to the forefront for all staff and children at CFS and utilised our passion, innovation and teamwork to act on a massive environmental issue in a truly beautiful way”.
Richard Cook, Eco Co-ordinator
“Carrie led a workshop for teachers on the links between waste and wildlife. She is an engaging and enthusiastic leader with a passion and knowledge of her subject that is infectious. She works equally well with both children and adults.”
