‘Earth Hour 2013, 8:30 PM Saturday 23 March. Earth Hour has grown from a one-city initiative in 2007 to the world’s largest campaign for the planet, uniting hundreds of millions of people across 7001 cities and towns in 152 countries and territories.

The official 2013 video features the track “Without You” by David Guetta and Usher, providing an upbeat soundtrack to match the celebration of this year’s event across the world. Earth Hour’s mission is to unite people to protect the planet, so go beyond the hour and upload your I Will If You Will challenge to Dare the World to Save the Planet.’

From Alex at Norfolk Master Gardeners: ‘Great idea for raised beds – easy, quick and a nice working height for people who have back problems. And with a touch of paint, could look very good in a garden too.

An added idea, is to adjust the depth of the bed, by moving the base pallet down a notch or two. This would be better for deep rooted crops such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc’

‘Over the last 3 years we have reached over 2000 young people and families across woodland days, teenage camp, youth training and leadership programmes, forest schools and family days. Our flagship projects, Call of the Wild and Earthwise, were funded under Natural England’s Access to Nature Grant and MIND’s Ecominds Grant and raised over £160,000 towards creating outdoor opportunities for the most disadvantaged groups in our society. The results show that this kind of work leads to better health and wellbeing, more opportunities, a greater sense of community and respect.’
