Good Green Foundation CIC

How it started

Over years of advising many clients, Haydon has helped a good number gift money to good causes. Years later, when starting up Good Green Money he had a brainwave. Why doesn’t he create his own good cause? Hence, the Good Green Foundation was born.

It is a form of social enterprise called a “community interest company”. The idea is a simple one. We take donations from anyone and when the donations build up, typically to around ÂŁ50,000, we seek out pockets of land anywhere in the UK, often out in the countryside but not far from towns and cities.

What happens next?

We start planting! Some of the donations are used to buy batches of young, native trees and bushes, tree protection tubes, tools and other equipment from The Woodland Trust.

The next thing we need is volunteers. We contact local groups, schools and clients who may be interested in coming along and helping us plant. We show them what to do, explain a little bit about the ecological benefits and then it’s away they go to get planting.

Over time, the Foundation sites grow into ecologically mature areas full of plants, animals, birds and insects. We’ll keep them maintained but in the main, we want to leave things to re-wild as naturally as possible. Once the Foundation sites are mature, we’ll open them up for the public to enjoy, encouraging nature walks, wood harvesting, bird watching. As time goes by, we hope to add more sites all over the UK. The more we do, the more we can tackle climate change and improve our health and wellbeing.
