A RURAL ESCAPE IN THE HEART OF NEWQUAY

We want a society that is environmentally conscious, a sustainable community that works for each other, and to put an end to social deprivation giving a fair chance in life for all.

We want to create a space where people from all walks of life can come together to work, rest, and play. A place in which people can grow, learn, and feel included. A place that provides mental health therapy, educational services to local schools and residents, and works to support the local community through events, rehabilitation, job creation and environmentally sustainable economic growth.
