GREEN HEALS UPDATE:
Cultivate, along with a high-calibre group of other stakeholders, took part in our first planning meeting for Green Heals, a project that we feel fulfils our mission in the wake of the recent devastating fires. Initial plans are to run two pilot projects in each of the fire affected areas - one in a school and one community based. More details to come as we get closer to the launch date which is scheduled to be in early March.
Thank you to everyone who has already expressed interest in being involved - we will be in touch with you soon! If you would like to lend your skills and be involved, you can still fill in this form
