With the help of PJ.elements the Community Forest Trust has just signed up to an initiative page with Spacehive.
The Trust supports Community Forests and other community forestry initiatives to help make things happen on the ground. Initiatives that the Community Forest Trust is currently working with include; The Mersey Forest, Red Rose Forest, Pennine Edge Forest and the Forest of Mercia.
Since 1991 the Forests have been creating new woodlands, helping to improve existing green spaces, greening urban areas and encouraging hundreds of thousands of people to explore the outdoors and to discover the countryside on their own doorstep.
Tony Hothersall, Director of the Red Rose Forest explained, “This all takes time and money and we are giving crowd funding with Spacehive a go to explore it’s potential and to see if social media cannot only draw in new interest into the Forest, but raise some cash as well. We have one project up on Spacehive already and more projects, including local street planting schemes will follow shortly”.
An Initiative page is a branded home page on Spacehive that provides a hub for organisations to host their portfolio of projects. Initiative pages can show all stages of development – from concepts to fully funded schemes, meaning that they are a great way to showcase the scope of activity around your campaign, product or service.
If you are keen to set up an initiative with an environmental focus please get in touch with PJ.elements.
