We are a small Forest School and in order to re-open our site, are raising funds to upgrade our toilet facilities to a composting 'tree bog'

We're still collecting donations

On the 21st June 2020 we'd raised £760 with 29 supporters in 14 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

Addition hand washing facilities placed around the site.

We are a small Forest School in Ashdon, North Essex, we run Forest School sessions for children and families in the local area. Unfortunately like so many businesses we have been closed for several months due to the global pandemic. We are working hard on our site to allow us to open in the comings weeks and months, to allow us to do this we need to ask for your help. We want to bring forward our plans to upgrade our current toilet facilities, (from essentially a bucket in a cubicle) to a fully composting self-sufficient 'tree bog' in which the trees planted around the toilet process the waste. This is not only a big improvement environmentally it is also provides a cleaner and more sanitary process in which no person comes into contact with the waste. We need to raise a total of £700 to cover the cost of labour and materials to convert our existing cubicle into a raised 'tree bog'. We would be so grateful if you feel able to make a small donation, or if that's not possible at the moment (of course we completely understand) if you could share our page with your friends on social media that would be a massive help.

Thank you so much for reading.
