TCV Hollybush – A walk on the wild side!

‘It is good to collect things but better to go on walks’ – This is a quote by Anatole Frances taken from The Vintage Book of Walking and we wholeheartedly agree!

This OAW video follows TCV Hollybush volunteers on a local wildlife walk along the Leeds Liverpool canal towpath. Living in Leeds we are fortunate enough to never be that far away from wild life and green space .

Helping Britain Blossom – Planting for the future

This video was commissioned by Helping Britain Blossom in partnership with Heineken and The Orchard Project. We spent time with Leeds Killingbeck residents whilst they planted their first orchard. We then fast forward a few months to the October harvest of apples in the surrounding area and we get to see what the locals do with the apples. The processing equipment is kindly provided by Leeds Urban Harvest – a community project that collects, processes and makes use of surplus fruit that would otherwise go to waste, from trees and bushes in both public and private spaces.

Hyde Park Source – Let’s grow together!

 

This OAW video showcases the beautiful allotment that is maintained by Hyde Park Source along with Forward Leeds service users. We spoke to the amazing volunteers about why they keep coming back for more rain or shine.

“Every volunteer is listened to and their opinions taken on board”

 

This OAW video was filmed at the historic Armley Mills industrial museum in Leeds. The museum has a garden and a large amount of the plants grown are for their colour dying properties. Hyde Park Source facilitate this weekly group along with the musuem and the volunteers were more than happy to speak with us about the lovely garden and what benefits they have seen since attending.

“You learn things and get in touch with people”

 

This OAW video was filmed at the beautiful TCV Hollybush site in kirkstall. We spoke with volunteers about what the site means to them and what they gain from attending the gardening groups.

Let’s get outdoors, active and well!

Outdoors, Active and Well is a project funded by the Big Lottery and run by three Leeds based nonprofits – Hyde Park Source, TCV Hollybush and Leeds Mind. We were commissioned by OAW to produce a series of videos that showcase the different groups available and the benefits of attending such as better health and wellbeing and learning new skills. This video is an overview of the organisations involved and what each one can offer with the overall aim being to get people Outdoors, Active and Well.
