Celebrating with Carymoor Environmental Trust

Tuesday, 19 September 2017

We were proud to be invited to join the team at Carymoor Environmental Trust last week to celebrate 21 years of their inspiring work reclaiming a local disused landfill site. Since 1996 they have transformed this desolate landscape into a beautiful nature reserve with a sustainably built education centre and visitor attraction including sensory & wildflower gardens, Celtic roundhouse, replica shanty town, forest school area and much more.  The site also boasts some exciting species of wildlife too, which shows that all the hard work is worth it!

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, with a keen interest in sustainability and ecology, was also invited to open a new interactive exhibit at the site called 'Going Underground'. This installation, built into a shipping container, will live underground like a time-tunnel. It takes visitors on a time-walk revealing how fashion, packaging, news and popular culture have changed from the 1970's to present day, yet highlights that although the world moves on, many of the toys, music players, clothes and appliances still live on in landfill.

Myakka's involvement with Carymoor began a couple of years ago when we collaborated to create a pond-dipping platform. It's now a popular feature used by visiting school parties who are keen to find rare newts and pondlife in their nets!

We can't recommend a visit to Carymoor enough - Their experienced education team provide inspirational day visits for schools and other educational groups, as well as excellent outreach programmes. So if you're a teacher or education provider - get in touch. Note: visits to Carymoor Environmental Trust must be pre-arranged.

This seems like a really great thing these people are doing. I know some people who are doing the same kind of thing in our city, will surely discuss it with them.
