Our charity works very hard to make a positive impact on young people. Below is a collection of films/documentaries, along with television and radio appearances, which we hope collectively highlights the positive impact that our charitable work has in Norfolk schools and on our all-important young people.
No Straight Lines
Our charity's main film (2022)
No Straight Lines(directed by Louis Johnson) is a film that represents our connection to nature, alternative-education and the spirit of doing things a little differently, nested inside the subject of school gardening and the work of our charity, proving the beneficial impact school gardening has on young people, educators and their wider communities.

#Upcycled 🆙♻️ #allotment shed well on the way @HewettAcad! Made with 100% young person EᑎTᕼᑌSIᗩSᗰ and 100% reclaimed wood (pallets; fence panels; joists; decking planks; offcuts). Probably not most symmetrical of creations, but the #youngpeople are making it, so who cares! https://t.co/USHQGnmEVC
We've started to #upcycle 🆙♻️ (creatively reuse) old school desks, with the help of awesome #ecobricks' too, into growing 🌱 beds for #youngpeople at @CAN_Academy. This is the beginning of the 'ℂ𝔸ℕGᖇOᗯ' project which is all about #youngpeople growing food for themselves! 👍🏽 https://t.co/m2gcdeOxGd
We're looking forward to using a 'fair few' #ecobricks in our charitable work over the coming months! Such an fantastic way of #upcycling 🆙♻️ litter (+ reducing landfill👍🏽) into a superb building material! We're looking forward sharing our ideas soon! Thank you #Ecobrick makers! https://t.co/6oPn42AuKA
The rainbow 🌈 #allotment is almost complete thanks to some absolutely IᑎᑕᖇEᗪIᗷᒪE #youngpeople @FakenhamAcademy who also successfully planted well over 1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ trees 🌳 today donated by @WoodlandTrust to create a native hedgerow around their project! #betterfuture #Fakenham https://t.co/xXGwnexwMO
