Greener Fram is an independent, voluntary, community group based in the small town of Framlingham in Suffolk. We aim to raise awareness of environmental issues, promote practical ways of reducing energy consumption, and champion the creation of a sustainable community.
Next Swap and Mend Saturday 12th May
We are looking for gardening volunteers to grow vegetables on the Greener Fram allotment. The gardeners can take home the harvest, any surplus can be given away at Swap and Mend mornings. We also need someone to co-ordinate. Contact Jackie at firstname.lastname@example.org
Framlingham Free Food Shed
You may have noticed a little green shed in the library car park. It isn’t the naughty cupboard for readers with unpaid library fines, it’s our new free food collection point. The aim is to prevent food waste. Greener Fram collects unsold produce from Tesco in Saxmundham to give away at our Swap and Mend mornings. We plan to collect more often, and put the food in our new shed. In addition, anyone can put food here that they won’t eat – eg surplus allotment produce, windfall fruit, unwanted food gifts. We just ask that it still be edible and appropriately wrapped/sealed. Anyone can take the food – it’s not a food bank (there’s a food bank donation point in the Co-op).
At our next Swap and Mend, Greener Fram is 10 years old!
