We’ve been working in Taunton for the Somerset Pilot of SPONGE2020 for two years now, and to celebrate verything that has been going on we have brought together the work we’ve been doing into a single document. The review shows the data and evidence we assessed in order to understand a bit about nature and people in Taunton, and to choose our focus areas. The document also has case studies of the education and engagement work and the raingardens we have built across Taunton.¬†
