We took a year to research the plan. We wanted to ensure that we understood the wood and the various needs of group members. The plan is a framework for action against which an annual action plan is agreed at the AGM. The process for making the plan was co-ordinated by the Core Group and open to all members, particularly at Solstice and Equinox ‘Gatherings’, when group decisions were made. A central ethos was to enable all members to take action within an agreed framework. It is understood that over the coming years, different people will add more detail to the plan.
