Let’s build a green and healthy future for Frome!

Green & Healthy Future for Frome, Storytelling

Edventure Frome, Frome Medical Practice and Frome Town Council are delighted to be kicking-off a new partnership, funded by the Climate Action Fund. 

Over the next two years we will be working together to build a greener, healthier future for Frome. We’re starting by asking “What can we do locally to improve our wellbeing, whilst also improving the health of the planet?”

Here are three things you can do to get involved:

1. Share an idea or two for how Frome could be made greener and healthier by the people of Frome on our online ideas platform

2. Register for the launch event on April 29th at 12.45pm

3. Ask for support to get an idea you have off the ground – message greenhealth@edventurefrome.org

Projects that create benefits for both climate and health come in many shapes and sizes. Getting on bikes rather than in cars both reduces our carbon footprint and is good for our health; growing veg can be good for mental health and is greener than buying produce from supermarkets; car sharing can help people make closer friendships and save on petrol; seasonal cooking lessons may help us adopt a greener, healthier diet. 

Online ideas platform

Do you have an idea for a project that would be good for health and the planet?

A green and healthy future for Frome will be built by many ideas, projects, stories, groups and businesses. We’ve created this online ideas platform to enable anyone to add and discuss ideas for green and healthy projects for Frome. It’s also an opportunity to share any projects that are already happening who may want to link up. 

Visit our online ideas platform to have a look and add your idea or email it to greenhealth@edventurefrome.org and we’ll add it for you.

Project Support

Do you want to bring an idea to life and need support? 

Edventure Frome will be setting up regular events which help people gather to learn new climate-saving skills and connect with others. We are seeking people who want to work with groups to get a green and healthy project or business idea off the ground. We provide free start-up mentoring, training, coaching, workspace, meeting rooms or help making connections. 
Interested? Email greenhealth@edventurefrome.org and we can arrange a call.
