When the sun shines...
This week we got the chance to visit one of our supported projects at Hilfield Friary. Here the Society of St. Francis community has taken significant steps to reduce, and nearly eliminate, their carbon footprint. A case study on their extraordinary journey to net-zero will be featuring on our website soon!
