“The Energy Was Mightily High” – YSP For Project Spring Revival

We were blessed to be able to offer our dedication and time to the Wonjeon in Stanton Fitzwarren over the bank holiday weekend for our Youth and Students for Peace (YSP) project.

Our goal was to create a wild camping area, put up signs, clear the path for the Woodland Walk, and create a new picnic area within the woods. This goal is in line with YSPs aims of supporting the UN’s sustainable development goals (specifically goal number 15: protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems).

The energy was mightily high and the sun was beaming. It was brilliant to see a wide variety of people (and guests) attend the event and come together, a strength of our movement is the sense of community and our ability to come together for goodness. I hope that the woodland area of the Wonjeon can be enjoyed by our community. Please come and visit! There are picnic/BBQ facilities, a nice forestry walk and the opportunity to camp (not to mention the lovely Holy Ground there).
