This is when we work with a secondary school or a sixth-form college, free of charge, for a whole academic year to either help create or 'kick start' a new allotment - no matter what size - from scratch or to 'reboot' an existing project that has fallen in decline. You can see more examples of our Transformative Programme by visiting 'Our work' pageor via the short film featured below:
After the transformation has been completed, The Papillon Project will then help a school or college to 'future proof' (make sustainable) their allotment and share all our experiences with 'growing help'.
Please click here to see all schools that our charity has helped through our Transformative Programme.
Due to very high demand, we politely ask schools and colleges to apply for this level of support by completing and returning an application form and a questionnaire.
All applications for our Transformative Programme will be reviewed and considered by our Board of Trustees. Following a successful application, a secondary school or sixth-form college will receive intensive support for a whole academic year and continued support for future years.
Applications for our Transformative Programme are currently closed as we are fully booked for this current academic year (2022-23). We will look to reopen applications in the spring of 2023. However, schools' are most welcome to register their interest and to find our more about this programme whenever they wish. Please click here to contact us.
#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
