An exciting new community project in Darnall

What is it? A programme of free outdoor events and nature-based activities for families who live in the Darnall area of Sheffield, which aims to:

  • inspire you to reconnect with nature
  • raise awareness and understanding of the vital benefits of nature has for our livelihoods, health and wellbeing, and how we can all help nature thrive
  • explore how you can improve green space where you live
  • support you to bring your ideas to life
  • give you the skills and knowledge to care for your green space
  • help you to feel safe and secure whilst spending time in your local green space

We're looking for families to take part in an ongoing project (initially over 1 year), to help shape what the project will be and do, so it responds to your needs and has a meaningful positive impact. You won't need to take part in every activity/event but it would be great to have families take part in multiple events throughout the project. What activities and events take place and how often depends on what comes out of the idea exploration at our launch event. 

Who is running it? The pilot project will be delivered through a partnership between:

  • Kids Plant Trees - a not-for-profit organisation working to help children and nature thrive together, in Sheffield and beyond
  • Evergreeny - a community focused after school club and home-ed support provider in Darnall, Sheffield
  • Sheffield Environmental Movement - a Sheffield-based charity working to reconnect Black Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugees (BAMER) communities to green spaces
  • Friends of High Hazels Park - a voluntary group working to maintain and improve High Hazels Park in Darnall, Sheffield

When does it start? We're launching the project with a fun-packed event for families in High Hazels Park on Sunday 28th April 2024. With nature-based activities for all the family, including arts & crafts, a tree walk & identification and idea exploration to give you a say in how the project is run. Refreshments will be provided. This is a FREE event for families in the Darnall area but booking is required. Book your tickets here
