This is a low impact rural enterprise located within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Centre promotes art and culture, eco-tourism, conservation and permaculture. The Centre is a few minutes walk from some of the most spectacular sandy beaches and coastal walks in England.

Temporary seasonal accommodation is available to visiting tourists in the form of yurts. The yurt camping field consists of a spacious field divided into 4 main circular spaces so that visitors can feel enclosed within their own private glade. Wildflowers provide valuable wildlife habitat, fabulous for observing bees and butterflies.

The project aims to conserve, protect, and enhance wildlife habitats and geological and archaeological features. Another aim is to increase the bio-diversity and productivity on the land and create a haven for both wildlife and visitors.

Volunteers can expect to get involved in a variety of jobs and activities from helping to manage the yurt camp, food growing, cooking, arts and crafts, land management, admin and community engagement.

The Centre is specifically looking for people with skills and experience (or a keen interest) in: hospitality, green building, carpentry, health food cooking, conservation and tourism.

Plans for this year include:

- Introducing veg boxes to the yurt camp
- Food growing (herbs & salads)
- Rustic furniture making
- Increasing the arts and crafts activities
- Producing interpretation / information boards
- Connecting with school groups
- Creating art and nature trails
