Raven Delta Group (RDG) – led by their engineering consultancy arm EFT Consult – and Garrison Farm CIC have entered into a strategic partnership aimed at building ecovillage developments and initiating support services dedicated to the needs of military service leavers and veterans.
Given the strength of both companies’ networks across the sector, the Armed Forces community will receive the benefit of employment and support networks with the advancement of this vision. “We needed a strong partnership if we were to quickly advance the objectives of Garrison Farm,” explains Chris Carree, Founder and Director of Garrison Farm. “We were looking for an organisation to partner with that brings valuable built environment sector knowledge to our already advanced plans on the ecovillages. We’ve found that with RDG.”
At the core of this collaboration are the values that both organisations share. “I’ve got veterans in both my family and business so projects like this are close to my heart,” explains Dave Kieft Managing Director of RDG. “The opportunity to partner with an ambitious, forward-thinking community interest company like Garrison Farm will help us improve the lives of our Armed Forces community through the creation of the ecovillages and sustainable farming projects. RDG and Garrison Farm have fantastic synergies and I look forward to working with them closely on this project.”
Chris Carree adds “I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with RDG on this project. The combined knowledge of RDG and Garrison Farm CIC will ensure that we are helping the Armed Forces community which is what Garrison Farm was set up to do.”
