Green Dragon's Den

Here's another article about Hay on Earth from the Welsh Government's website, including another summary of the winners, who took away a £10k grant to accelerate their projects:

  • Rebound Books won the Clever Stuff prize. This project was developed by L’Arche Brecon  based in a community where adults with and without learning disabilities live and share life together,  The project creates recycled notebooks, sketchbooks, diaries or journals from old or discarded books with the original publication interspersed with blank pages.
  • Food for the Future developed by Blaenau Gwent Council took away the Field to Fork award. Their project encouraged Primary and Secondary schools to install allotments, wildlife gardens and waste recycling facilities across the Borough.
  • One Million Person Sharing Plan for Wales won the Home and Hearth competition.  It aims to help people and communities in Wales share resources.  Everything from bikes, meeting rooms or garden tools will be shared through an online sharing platform, creating a collaborative way of consuming goods and services.
  • Pots, Tubs, Troughs and Tucker was the winner of the Connecting Communities theme.  The Wellbeing Alliance, including the Cooperative Group, Public Health Wales and Communities 1st/Gwent Association of Voluntary Organisations project will develop a community scheme to encourage people in Blaenau Gwent to grow their own produce, share skills and come together.
