Welcome to the RACE Website

Thank you for visiting the RACE Website.

We are a registered charity based in Ringwood, Hampshire, with the aim of bringing people from the Ringwood area together to take actions that help the environment, biodiversity, and climate change.

We provide opportunities for people to take actions locally to reduce waste, learn new skills and combat climate change. So far we have

  • Encouraged the planting of over 50,000 trees since 2020 (Trees for the Future)
  • Saved over 97 tonnes of food from waste since May 2021 (Ringwood Community Fridge)
  • Saved over 50 duvet covers, 45 sheets and 30 pairs of curtains from waste through our sewing workshops (Make, Do and Mend)
  • Planted 1000s of bulbs and 100s of pollinator friendly plants through (RACE to Green)
  • Started a series of meals together to provide inspiration about vegetables (Pick to Plates)
  • Had a series of opportunities for people to connect with the environment through art
  • Run 3 Ringwood ECO Fairs
  • Run 6 clothes swaps
  • Run 3 spring seed and seedling swaps

Lots of opportunities to get involved with our new land at Crow Hill - the lovely Jack Wright Field
