Friends of Sustainable Harborough Community
These local groups share our values and operate in collaboration with our vision.
Harborough Woodland Community Volunteers
Responsibly increasing regional tree and hedge cover where possible without cost to the landowner. We are ambitious, keen to build synergy between the isolated talents and empower the unlimited community capacity. We are passionate about people, wildlife and their future. Our priorities are befriending landowners, community groups, government agencies and charities. Finding and helping to implement opportunities in school, large area natural flood management and agroforestry schemes. We're promoting all best practice. We are planning support for green social prescribing and training to create employment.
Market Harborough Fairtrade Town
We encourage and support individuals, shops, businesses, schools and churches to buy, sell and use Fair Trade products. Fair trade works to raise the voices of producers and prioritise what they need to respond to the environmental crises unfolding in already vulnerable communities.
Market Harborough Master Composters
Master Composters are here to help any resident of Market Harborough who wants to start composting at home, or to people who are already home composting and may be having difficulties or need encouragement. We are part of the Leicestershire Master Composters Scheme.
Parish of the Transfiguration
There are 2 churches in the parish both of which are working towards the Arocha Eco Church Award Scheme. The award encourages churches and church communities to review their behaviour and impact on God's World and supports behaviour change to reduce the church and it's members impact on the environment. The award themes include Worship and Teaching, the church buildings, the management of church land, global and community engagement and lifestyle.
