Social Enterprises are a great way of helping remote rural communities get stronger and more resilient, stemming the tide of depopulation.
Through the UnLtd social entrepreneur scheme I obtained a Do It Award, which is enabling me to set up an enterprise to enable folk to learn new skills using local resources – resources that are often not recognised as such.
We have started out by offering a series of training days to remove rhododendron and make biochar out of the resulting brash. We hope to expand into using bracken, wool and seaweed to make compost – with biochar added for good measure!
Stuart Lee of One Horizon has made a great logo for us (see above image). Hopefully one day “local” will come to you!
