Join us on the journey – 2022 campaign to celebrate community

Member News

A calendar of events, celebrations, fundraising and community activities starts today – with the launch of Groundwork Northamptonshire’s new ‘Seeds of Hope’ campaign.

Seeds of Hope has been organised by Groundwork – a charity committed to green, creative and youthwork projects – to unite and strengthen their local communities post pandemic.

Kate Williams, CEO of Groundwork Northamptonshire, said: “There’s no denying that the pandemic has planted some seeds of change in how we work as individuals, as communities and as a wider society. Now it’s time to make those seeds grow.

“At Groundwork Northamptonshire we are running a year-long Seeds of Hope campaign – one designed to take these seeds and help people and communities flourish, become much stronger and more fulfilled. Throughout 2022, we’ll be preparing, planting, prospering and providing, giving you the chance to try new things, meet new people and get involved in your community. Please join us on this journey.”

Groundwork Northamptonshire has divided its Seeds of Hope campaign into four ‘seasons’: Prepare, Plant, Prosper and Provide. During each season there will be events, campaigns, blogs, community involvement and much more.

Prepare will run throughout April – with a host of spring activities planned. People are invited to get involved by visiting the new Seeds of Hope website, subscribing to the newsletter and sharing your own news and stories.

Plant will run in May and June as the weather gets warmer. There will be online gardening guides, wellbeing walks and information and activities to help people get closer to nature.

Prosper will run in July and August and will be about encouraging people to enjoy the fruits of their labour (or other people’s) by trying new recipes or learning a new craft, using what is naturally around us as inspiration.

Provide concludes the campaign, running in September and October, and will celebrate the harvest season, allowing people to make the most of all they’ve done this year.
