NATURAL CUMBRIA MEMBERSHIP

The Natural Cumbria membership is for our members to be part of a growing group of like-minded businesses that meet in various ways to try to grow sustainable and kind businesses together.

All our members are welcome to join the private Facebook networking group and come along to networking events, workshops and markets, however only Green members get discount prices for these events and priority over anyone else.

Networking and Workshops

The idea for our networking and workshop events are so that like-minded business owners, that focus their values on helping people and planet, rather than primarily on profit, can move forward together. This is a new path in business and something that is needed in our world today, so getting together in groups, sharing ideas, new concepts, experiences and making connections is really valuable.
There are so many different issues to get around in business today regarding climate change, waste management, fair trade, ethical suppliers and wellbeing of business owners and staff, that it is best to support one another in new ideas and ways forward. We love magical collaborations not competition!

Our first networking event was on 20th Nov 2019 at Lancrigg Hotel in Grasmere. It was a great success over 30 people attended from all over Cumbria and all expressed interest in coming back again! We had a great talk from 17 year old Amy from Another Way and lots of connections made.

Events

As well as networking and workshops for members, we also occasionally put on events such as eco markets, family days and also wedding fairs. These are places members get the chance to showcase what they do and also have the chance to meet and create a little community of like-minded business owners. Family days are really important as we also believe showing our children conscious community and forward thinking, kind and sustainable business is also very important, so that they can see different ways for the future.

Our first event is a Christmas Eco Pop-Up Market in Ambleside on 7th December. You can find out more here.
