2020VISION New Beginning Symphony

2020VISION’s aim has always been to convey the value of restoring our fragmented natural habitats and show that healthy ecosystems are not just for wildlife, but are fundamental to us all.

The New Beginning Symphony which has previously only been shown as part of the 2020VISION Roadshow is now available on Vimeo to the general public.

Set against a beautifully composed symphony by Thao Nguyen, New Beginning was produced in partnership with the National Youth Orchestra of Wales and the Music Director, Martyn Ford. To me  the the symphony and accompanying video is an inspiring and emotional call to action, making the case for repairing, reconnecting and restoring Britain’s nature. Play it loud and enjoy!

The 15 minute New Beginning video can be viewed here 

The symphony is available for public screening for a small licence fee. If you are interested in showing the video at your event please contact 2020VISION Coordinator Pete Cairns;peter@2020v.org Please mention PJ.elements in your request.

Opening of the farm shop at Snakehall Farm, Cambridgeshire

The Prospect Trust’s new farm shop was officially opened by Councillor Mac McGuire on Saturday 27th September 2014. The opening of the shop will allow more of the  vegetables and herbs grown on the farm to be sold to local people.

The Prospects Trust supports work based placements for adults with learning difficulties, disabilities and mental ill health on a weekly basis. The Prospects Trust at Snakehall Farm near Reach, Cambridgeshire, provides work based training and opportunities for people with learning difficulties, disabilities and those with varying health needs.  The Co-workers work the 18 acre farm site growing the most edible, organic and seasonal vegetables and herbs.

The Prospects Trust is a registered charity run to co-operative principles.  All profits from the sale of produce and fundraising activities are ploughed back into the Prospects Trust. The charity was established in 1989 and has been proudly “Growing Differently” for over 2 decades.

In the UK there are around 230 care farms providing ‘green therapies’ through supervised, structured programmes of farm related activities for a wide range of people including young people at risk, older people as well as those suffering from the effects of ill health or with mental health issues.

 

 

 

 

Cambridgeshire Rural Care Farm celebrates 25 years with an Open Day on the 27th September

 

The Prospects Trust was established in 1989 to provide supported work based training in horticulture and life skills for people with learning difficulties. Over the years this socially inspiring enterprise has grown in size, people and projects.

The Silver Jubilee Farm Open Day will bring all the fun of the farm to the general public from tractor rides, to welly wanging, this event promises to celebrate the last days of summer and just the beginning for a local charitable enterprise, The Prospects Trust.

Maz Baker, Development Co-manager said “We are also using this day to open some HUGE presents to our Co-workers, our new Farm Shop and Toilet block, these two larger than life presents are the results of the donations, sponsorship and funding that has been invested into the Charity, this event will be a great way for our supporters to see just what a small charity can do with their investment.”

Pete Johnstone, from PJ.elements a local business said ” There is growing evidence  that contact with nature and the natural environment and the outdoors can bring real benefits to people’s health and well being and it is important that we continue to support ventures like the farm at the Prospects Trust.”
