Got an idea?

Is there something you feel we need in Frome?

Online ideas board

Do you have an idea for a project that would be good for both people and the planet?

A live ideas board where you can post ideas and priorities. It collects together ideas that we as a community want to see taking place in our town. We have the chance to explore the ideas and support popular ones to develop further. The ideas will also help us to plan a programme of activities and events that can take place within the Future Shed.

Project support

Do you want to bring an idea to life and need support?

We can provide start-up mentoring, coaching, meeting rooms, co-working space or help making local connections – free for anyone who is working on an activity, project or social enterprise with the potential to both improve people’s health and address climate change. 

Interested? Email greenhealth@edventurefrome.org and we can arrange a call.


Ian Marshall

“The regular meetups helped us to talk about our vision for the Food Hub with peers working in similar areas and make connections that have been useful in moving things forward. Most importantly I think it has given us the motivation and reassurance that what we are doing is beneficial, worthwhile and can be achieved with the support of the community.”

Ian Marshall co-leads the Frome Food Hub joined the Future Shed and received individual coaching session from Edventure’s advisors focusing on developing the vision & looking at some specific governance questions.
