Environmental Awards...the results

I'll put up a more detailed report on our main website later this afternoon, but for those of you who can't wait, here's the list of successful applications to The Castle Environmental Awards Scheme:

Project A - Community Action Nepal. The Castle grant will enable CAN to build a health post in Ghap, currently a six-day walk from the nearest health post.

Project B - Beekeeping in North Wales. Castle instructor, Cordelia Molloy, has been given an award to start some hives in Llanberis.

Project D - Growing Communities. The Castle grant will fund educational signs for Growing Communities' plots in Hackney to teach visitors about organic farming methods.

Project E - The Saha Atitsva Foundation. We'll be funding the purchase and installation of solar panels for this eco-farm in Ganeshpuri, India.

Project G - Our Head Instructor, Dean Plant, will be undertaking a part-time internship with Greenpeace UK.

Project H - Magnificent Revolution will use this grant to fully fund the construction of their new hub located at Hackney City Farm.

Project J - Pangea Project will use our grant to purchase a bicycle and trailer for deliveries as part of their larger aim of making their business 100% sustainable.

Thank you to everyone who voted by ballot and email- your votes did make a difference!
