One Planet Matters is busy expanding its growing networks - Environmental change with social responsibility. One Planet Matters supports and creates networks of groups and organisations. The focus is to create environmental change through enabling activities. Collaborating with and supporting others to create networks that are environmentally positive and socially responsible. School children support vulnerable groups by growing fresh healthy food, community orchards bring people together and create food to share. Biodiversity is improved by the planning of growing areas and the planting of orchards and community woodland. Health and well being is supported by the activities and children and young people develop their understanding of social responsibility by supporting both the planet and society. What isn't there to like about that?
