NEW LEAF is a not for profit co-operative, promoting sustainable living in Herefordshire and beyond. We seek to support and encourage people, locally and internationally, to demonstrate that the pursuit of a flourishing ecology, human wellbeing and a prosperous local economy are worthwhile and inter-related objectives with multiple benefits.

Initiated in 2010, we have been best known in the county for our annual h.Energy event and for our work to reduce Herefordshire’s carbon footprint. For other previous work see the drop-down list in the top menu.

A small charitable co-op, we work collaboratively with each other – and many communities, public sector organisations and businesses. Meet the team here


  • act as a catalyst for change
  • engage Herefordshire’s diverse communities in building and realising a shared and just vision of a sustainable future
  • establish effective and equitable structures and systems to realise that vision
  • build on the strengths and achievements of the county and its communities

Three parallel actions or challenges underpin the work of New Leaf:

  1. Influencing public policy in favour of sustainable development
  2. Raising public awareness of climate change, peak oil and broader sustainability issues
  3. Encouraging and supporting individuals, organisations, communities and businesses in their own endeavours to devise and implement practical changes to make Herefordshire a more sustainable county
