Stroud Valleys Project
Stroud Valleys Project is an environmental charity which aims to help people care for and learn about the natural environment. We work with volunteers and local communities to improve wildlife habitats, green spaces and access to the countryside in and around Stroud and the wider district. We have been based in the town for 23 years and have an office and an “Eco Shop” at 8 Threadneedle Street. We want to make Stroud a better, healthier place in which to live for both present and future generations and spread the word about the importance of protecting biodiversity and reconnecting with nature.
We share many aims with the transition movement as we want to encourage local people to think and act in a sustainable way. We have our own allotment and are currently working with 20 local schools to encourage children to grow and eat their own food. We promote recycled, Fair Trade and and environmentally friendly goods through our shop and offer our volunteers the benefits of practical conservation work in the open air. Our ‘open to all’ events programme runs throughout the year and include walks, talk and activities.
