Green Connectors

A network improving health and helping the environment.

Interested in the link between our health and our environment? Want to make a difference to your local community? Perhaps you want to improve your health and meet new people. 

If so, please join this exciting new project! 

Simply come along to a Green Connector workshop at Frome Medical Practice to find out how you could do your bit – for your own health, for the health of your friends and family, and for the local environment. 

Workshops take place in person or online, where you’ll meet other local people and find out more about what is happening locally to support people to improve their health and that of the environment. 

Our workshops are free, open to all and only take one hour. You’ll learn all about:

  • The connection between what’s good for our local environment and what’s good for our health
  • The Local Directory, which lists all the events happening in Frome like gardening and walking groups, parkrun and how to hire E-bikes 
  • How to pass on to friends and family green and healthy things they might like to do – without them feeling pressured

At the end of the workshop, you’ll be more knowledgeable about what’s happening in Frome – and you’ll find out which green and healthy activities you might like to get involved with yourself. 

The Green Connectors project is part of Green & Healthy Frome, a partnership between Edventure, Frome Medical Practice and Frome Town Council. It is made possible thanks to funding from National Lottery.  We also work with local organisations who want to expand their environmental efforts.

  • Put your staff in touch with what’s happening locally in Frome to help improve health and improve the local environment. 
  • Help with ideas on how to create a green team or find a green champion in your organisation 
  • Help with ideas for annual volunteer days, or team building exercises, that are a win win for health and the environment.
