The Butterfly Effect is the name of our school allotment network/support group here in Norfolk. It's our goal to bring schools and colleges together to spread inspiration and enthusiasm.
Key aspects of why, as a charity, we feel it is so incredibly important to help bring schools/colleges together and to help them to network:
Why the 'Butterfly Effect'?
The name of our school allotment network has been inspired by the theory that one little change can create a ripple effect and help to create a bigger change. The idea being that if a butterfly flaps its wings to take off, this can end up creating a knock on effect and end up creating a typhoon. Of course, one butterfly flapping its wings cannot cause a typhoon, but, in reality, if a school donates some seeds to another school, for example, that little kind and cooperative act will have a much greater and positive impact on the other school. The concept behind the butterfly effect can also be negative of course, especially when it comes to the impact caused by removing one single animal or plant from a very delicate and finely balanced eco-system.
