Working with the Environment Agency, NFYFC has launched YFC Operation Green and is asking YFCs and County Federations to organise a project in their local community that positively contributes to improving the natural environment. The project has been supported by NatWest as part of the build up to National Young Farmers’ Week 2021.
Litter remains a huge problem in the countryside – especially following the increased number of visitors to green spaces during the pandemic. All this excess waste will be having a detrimental impact on wildlife and YFC can help to do something about it and support our local communities.
This can include litter picks, cleaning up local areas, cleaning signage, improving areas such as the village hall or planting trees and improving natural habitats.
YFCs can work with local schools or other youth groups to develop their projects too – it can be a great way to strengthen community links and work together to achieve your goals. Advice and further information is available from the NFYFC website.
