The Green Gathering charity was set up with the intention to take forward the spirit of the old Big Green Gathering, while providing a new model for working collaboratively to host educational, sustainable events and to address social and environmental issues which demand our attention with increasing urgency.

The charity commissions the annual Green Gathering festival which is delivered on behalf of the charity by its trading arm – Optimistic Trout Productions, a Community Interest Company (CIC).

The charity uses any financial surplus generated by the event to further its wider educational and environmental objectives, for example by seeding other events and funding educational activities at and outside of the Gathering.

Charity projects have included the Crock n Rock crockery hire service, Clean Stream educational recycling depot, autism-friendly Serenpod safe space, biodiversity study of the festival site, and free craft workshops for all ages.
