what the young people who participate in our courses say

I’m proud to be a part of new leaf it has been a great experience, and I believe it will help me with my future and to find work. I’ve had a great time working with new leaf as it is fun and a great place to learn new things. I hope to continue my work with new leaf. It is a great project and really helps us younger people to focus on the environment and our own futures.

Summer Splash

New Leaf pond 22.08.13

Today New Leaf celebrated a successful summer of mentoring young people with an end-of-season party. Trustees, backers, alumni, local residents, long-time friends, and volunteers mingled over coca-cola, coffee and excellent BBQ-fare. It was an incredibly successful day – the very nature of New Leaf means that friends pop-in when they are about, and do some volunteering at different times – and some volunteering is done in peoples’ studies (web-design, putting together proposals for funding) – so it was fantastic for all these people to meet each other – in some cases for the first time.
