Hawkwood College in Stroud is an educational charity providing courses and facilitating training in a stunning location in the Cotswolds. It brings together people and organisations from many backgrounds in support of creative endeavour, a flourishing community and a sustainable environment. A Triodos loan will support an urgent upgrade of power for the site. Hawkwood was also supported by Triodos for its bi-annual Seed Festival: Planting Big Ideas event in the summer of 2019.
