The article focuses on the wood and furniture recycling project for homeless and disadvantaged people run by Watford New Hope Trust. The trust works to an environmental policy, it also has an organic market garden, a day centre with a soil roof to retain heat, and recycles waste materials. John Swallow, project supervisor, says support from the community is essential to the success of the project. Schoolchildren recently carried out a sponsored sleep-out to raise money for the trust.
