1% Middlewood Trust

Middlewood Charitable Trust was set up 30 years ago to provide education and research into sustainable living, sustainable food production, low impact lifestyles and ecosystems. They are situated on a 250 acre organic woodland which has managed to preserve hundreds of ancient varieties of apples, plums, damsons and pear trees.

The Middlewood Centre hosts a community yurt, a permaculture demonstration garden and an off-grid centre with a bunkhouse facility, from which they offer courses including hedge laying, making pickles and preserves, round wood timber frame shed building, organic food growing, mulching and composts and seed saving among many others. They also rent out the centre to likeminded organisations wishing to run residential courses. Middlewood attracts over 800 visitors a year.
