We have recently started working with the Carymoor Environmental Trust who are based in Castle Cary, Somerset – just down the road from Myakka HQ. The Trust carries out pioneering land restoration and habitat creation work on 100 acres of capped landfill. The centre is located working next door to a working active landfill site which provides the perfect contrast of the sustainable environmental projects versus the less sustainable use of landfill.
The Trust provides educational training for schools and clubs which help children understand the importance of the environment and how sustainability and the environment is important but fun. The trust can teach students about everything from recycling to global citizenship.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the Carymoor Environmental Trust or would like to know more about the volunteering opportunities please take a look at their website which is full of information about volunteering opportunities and about the new Wetlands Centre.
