Rosa Beesley shares her story:

“My experience with Edventure continues to ripple through my life. I am thankful to making some great friends there that helped me find my home in Bristol. I am grateful for all the skills I gained while working with this vibrant community project; which undoubtedly opened up the opportunity into my current role.

I am working with a crisis support charity that tackles homelessness, food security and food poverty. I began by volunteering for their support centres that distribute surplus/waste food to the clients. Over a year later I suggested opening up a community growing project on an allotment they had been offered. Since July 2018, I have established two productive food growing sites, a dedicated team of volunteers from across the city, weekly drop in sessions at both sites, regular open events and corporate volunteering days with groups such as Bristol Poverty Institute and Pukka herbs…

…As part of the Edventure alumni I was gifted a place on the MOE Foundation Coaching course, I feel exceptionally lucky to now be a certified coach! I cannot express enough gratitude to Edventure in helping me get to where I am today, I hope in the future to be able to return the infinite love and support!
