Binsted Eco Network

… an environmental network for Binsted and its surrounding areas

About us.

Binsted Eco Network is a group of friendly locals, of all ages, with interests in local wildlife, supporting local food production, tackling single-use plastic and working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Sign up for our newsletter.

We have a free fortnightly newsletter with details of the many environmental activities taking place locally. (Email: to be added to the circulation list.)

‘First Friday’ monthly coffees.

We generally meet each First Friday of each month (even in school holidays) between 10:00 & 12:00. at the Pavilion.

‘Green Drinks’ at the Binsted Inn.

We also meet from time to time in the evenings, for ‘Green Drinks’ – an informal chance to meet in a local pub.

Booking isn’t necessary, but as the venue varies, email for details.

Green Ribbons tree, hedge and pollinator planting initiative. 

Working with Binsted’s Tree Warden, Binsted Eco Network maintains a list of free tree saplings available that are available free to anyone looking to plant a tree on their land.

For further details about this, email

Childrens’ welly swap scheme.

We’ve set up a Welly Swap: Instead of throwing out childrens’ outgrown wellies, just exchange them, for free, for a bigger size! The Welly Swap cabinet is currently in the foyer of the Wickham Institute, and is open for use whenever the building itself is open. It has wellies up to adult size 6. If your family or friends have any childrens’ wellies that’re no longer needed, we’d love to have them. Just email and we’ll arrange collection.

 We don’t need a handful of people doing sustainable living perfectly.

We need millions of us doing it imperfectly.
