We love getting involved with local events, our volunteers are enthusiastic and ensure that fun is had wherever we go. Whether it’s an information stand or hosting planting workshops we come fully kitted out to support events who care about promoting healthy lifestyle choices.

Lovelyland has good links with local organisations such as Incredible Edible Shropshire and Green Shropshire Exchange, this enables us to access a wide range of information about green projects in Shropshire.
