Lancaster Black History Group

Lancaster Black History is a new grassroots community group of local residents working to fight racism through education. We are currently working on a research project with local communities to trace the history and links that seven prominent local families appear to have had with either the triangular transatlantic slave trade or bilateral trade with the plantations. Seven groups including schools, university students, voluntary organisations, community and faith groups will be producing community stories and learning relating to seven family trees in a way that allows local people to work together to face the past, and in doing so transform the future.

Permaculture

The Permaculture Responds project will make our network of projects, educators and practitioners and all the brilliant learning and practice that we have built up over the years, more accessible to more people.
