Woodlands Community Climate Action is a new project that will have 4 main strands of activity: improving climate literacy, increasing participation in cycling, promoting local and seasonal vegetarian/vegan food and reducing, re-using and recycling.
We are looking for a person with a background in both cookery and community development to lead on food activities. The successful candidate will be accomplished in cooking vegetarian/vegan food and have detailed knowledge of issues relating to food and climate change.

Woodlands Community Garden which supports over 50 households a year to grow their own food and is used as an outdoor centre for environmental education
