A wildlife sanctuary and nature reserve with an eco inspired community centre for teaching eco based skills and offering community support.

by Earthkin in United Kingdom

We are Debs and Tom, and we are on a mission with our project, Earthkin.  We are selling our home to help fund this project but we need to raise funds to buy land, The vision stems from our deep love of nature, past work with wildlife and support work for those with social anxiety and learning difficulties.

Our  goal is to create a wildlife and nature reserve on a large piece of  farming land within the UK, to allow the land to become a habitat for all of nature,  to be a release site for rehabiliated wildlife and those under threat.   We want to plant trees, hedging, re introduce bog areas and allow the  natural eco system to return.  We believe that with the current decline in species and suitable  habitat, future generations are at risk of missing out on seeing and experiencing the full array of nature that we saw in our childhood.  We  want the children of the future to know what Mrs Tiggywinkle looks like  in real life. To hear the call of a skylark. To see the ladybirds fly  away home. Not just in books and on recorded footage but to be able to  see it for themselves. We also want to create an eco based community centre on the land where people  can come and learn  about the simplicity of self sufficiency, nature based crafts, basic skills including growing and preparing food, environmenal awareness and the importance of living and  working in balance with our surroundings.  You can see our full  vision on our website www.earthkin.org and you can also find out more about us, our furry and  feathery family and how this vision came about.  We will be regularly  updating our blog so you can follow our adventures.
