AROUND THE CENTRE
The Centre is surrounded by beautiful woodlands and gardens - blanketed with wild garlic and bluebells in the Spring; and in summer the gardens are full of exotic flowering trees and plants. It is like a hidden oasis - yet it is only 10 minutes walk from the main pier and seashore.
The building itself is being renovated and retrofitted it to make it as green and energy efficient as possible. It is the perfect venue for our residential and other courses as well as a public visitor/ demonstration centre. It has 6 bedrooms, library, workshop, teaching/events room and diningroom for residential use.
For the casual visitor, we are developing a variety of outdoor demonstration projects and displays on topics such as solar water heating, composting and energy conservation.
A central part of Earth Connections is growing food. An organic forest garden is being developed, where we have planted over 120 fruit and nut trees; apples, pears, plums, gages, cherries, walnuts, cobnuts and a couple of figs. We also have honeybees and plants to encourage more wildlife and biodiversity.
