Open Days Access Fund

Paramaethu Connect Open Days Access Fund

Group of people watching a talk, with bunting in a hallUp to £500 supporting permaculture projects in Wales to be accessible to the public.

Paramaethu Cymru would love to help you open your Permaculture project to the public. Never has there been greater interest and hunger for sustainable solutions, and permaculture is one route that an increasing number of people are exploring in the UK and abroad. This is a great time for us to share what we know and care about, and what we are trying to achieve sustainably!

Apply for up to £500:

We want to help more member projects open their doors next spring and summer. In exchange for Open Day Access funding we ask you to open your project/site for a day, to celebrate and use the work we have done together.

To prepare for your project Open Day we could, for example, help fund:

  • necessary insurance, such as public liability;
  • improved Health & Safety following a risk assessment [template available];
  • improved vehicular or disability access;
  • infrastructure for group visits – for example a compost toilet or covered space for talks;
  • online access for the public [office based projects];

…Other items that will help open your project to the public? – you tell us!

 

There is a total of £6500 available which amounts to 13 or more Open Days Access funding [if projects require less, then we will be able to fund more of you]. We hope to attract a spread of projects from all parts of Wales, and will prioritise funding according to greatest need, best offer, as well as according to how many visitable projects are in each area.
