We are a community action group of like-minded people who care about our local environment. We aim to share knowledge about sustainable living and permaculture whilst promoting community cohesion. In our resources pages, you can find tips on how to live more sustainably, healthy recipes using ingredients you can grown yourself, useful websites and local resources including places to visit. You will also find a whole section about recycling including downloadable and printable guides for the Amber Valley and Erewash areas.
Currently our main project is the Shipley Woodside Community Garden on Hassock Lane. We first started work on the 1.5 acre field in September 2019 and in what has been a short period of time, the transformation has been incredible, which is all down to the hard work from our members and volunteers and the financial support whether that be from grants or donations from the community. Check out our Community Garden project page for more information.
We also maintain the entrance to Shipley Woods and run local litter picking sessions.
As well as having specific SEAG projects we also support other environmental community projects such as volunteering with Woodland Trust planting trees and supporting Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. We are also supporting the Save Cotmanhay and Shipley Green Belt Community Group.
We are a very friendly group all with different strengths and skills, so why not come along to one of our meetings, volunteer at the Community Garden and / or follow us on our Facebook page. Find out more about how you can get involved here.
