NOMAD Community Projects
NOMAD Community Projects is a not-for-profit local enterprise for healthy outdoor activity that benefits local communities & our environment, particularly tackling carbon emissions.
NOMAD Community Projects plants trees & hedging & rewilds areas of Suffolk countryside, thereby offsetting the carbon emissions of local communities. These events are funded by local & national charities as well as our sister company, NOMAD Sea Kayaking, which provides the Guides, kayaks & vehicles for these events.
NOMAD Community Projects benefits our countryside & local communities by providing opportunities to offset the carbon footprint of our guest's participation in events. This is done through heavily subsidised, outdoor events like the 'Charity Beach Clean by Kayak.' This event costs £79.99 per person with our funders contributing half the cost and NOMAD Sea Kayaking paying half with a small donation from the guest. The donation goes directly to NOMAD Community Projects & is used for environmental projects in Suffolk. NOMAD Community Projects is regulated by the Office of the Regulator of Community Interest Companies. NOMAD Community Projects produces annual accounts which are in the public domain. This is good work & much needed.
NOMAD Community Projects was constituted in December 2019 & began its first community events in 2020. To date, N.C.P. has secured three acres of land with a fifteen-year lease & planted almost one thousand trees & hedging. We completed four 'Beach Clean by Kayak' events in 2021 and the same scheduled for 2022. Our work continues in 2022 with a further four hundred and twenty trees (as of 1st April 2022) planted in addition to five bee hives across two apiaries.
