STC Projects

Here are some of the projects we are currently supporting, if you would like to get involved or even start your own project, please get in touch using the form below!

Green Business Badge

STC has recently won lottery funding to roll out a Green Business Badge scheme which aims to celebrate local green businesses and encourage others to become a bit greener.

The badge will hopefully help the community of Salisbury shop with confidence knowing that their local is being kind to the environment.

This project is in the very early planning stages and as things develop, we will keep you all posted!

Share (A Library of Things)

This project was born from and supported by STC until it was time for it to become its own CIC.

We love this initiative as it promotes a circular economy while providing access to items that may have previously been affordable, only required for single use or impractical to store at home.

To browse the Library of Things, head to their website. www.sharesalisbury.co.uk

Air Pollution Monitoring

We are hoping to join the worldwide citizen science sensor community (https://sensor.community/) that promotes, amongst other things, the monitoring of small particulate air pollution (PM 2.5). 

Do you have the skills, knowledge or enthusiasm required to join the air pollution monitoring team?

Holes for Hedgehogs

We were approached to help with a project which aims to help local hedgehogs who are now on the list of threatened species.

The aim is to create a hedgehog superhighway by encouraging people to cut holes in their garden fences to enable hedgehogs safe passing without the need to cross roads (and risk being squished).

We have helped to design a flyer which will be distributed spring 2021, if you would like to get involved we have a Facebook group you can join or send us an email.

Trees & Hedge Planting

 

Our member groups are working with the City Council to get more planted. They should improve air quality, biodiversity, look nice or screen of something that doesn’t and eventually trap some carbon.

In the last year over 1,000 mixed native hedging was planted and over eighty native trees with all but 50 procured or funded by members. If you want to help contribute or find plants, funds, space or time to plant more or help maintain those we've just planted then please get in touch.

The next planting season starts in October!

Husseys Almshouses Rewilding

This new group is taking on the challenge of rewilding one of Salisbury's most beautiful and well known Almshouses.
