Who are we? The Golden Valley Environment Group was set up in late 2006 to help people who want to do something positive for the environment in and around the Golden Valley in West Herefordshire.
The group is working on important environmental issues that people are concerned about and helping people to do something about the issues to improve the situation.
For every £ that you spend on local services, local produce, local product, whatever, 80% of that cost remains in the local area and 20% of it "disappears". Whereas, for every £ that you spend on imported services, produce, product, merchandise, only 20% of that cost remains in the local area!
So on that note, follow these "local links" and see what is available locally.
What's New at GVEG?
GVEG Current Themes include
energy, carbon and climate change - we all hear about climate change every day but what is it and what can we do?
transport - it's not easy to be green
waste and resources - it's a throw-away society whether we like it or not
food and business - local food is one of the Golden Valley success stories and one of the sustainable business ideas for the area
landscape and biodiversity - it's why people come here and
campaigning and communication - in this game you need to think global but act local - this bit is about the global.
How can you help? In a number of ways - first by reading and thinking about what is on this site, get more involved - if not with us then with another group doing something positive - or take some actions on your own. You can help our work by using the weblinks on these webpages when you want to buy some goods and services - we work with some selected suppliers and if you go to them through this website (and buy something!) the group will usually receive a little money (at no extra cost to you) to help with our work, in some cases we have also negotiated a discount for you too! See the Products page.
Dates to Remember
All GVEG meetings are open to anyone and everyone in the local area
who is interested in the environment.

Everyone is welcome. Spread the word!! Hope to see you there.
