Update on Resurgence Environmental Education Centre
Plans for our new education and arts centre are now moving forward apace. Tenders are going out, builders & tradesmen are taking measurements, writing reports and poking holes in ceiling and walls! We hope to start the actual building work in the next three months. Repair and refurbishment will include installing thermal and solar power units, energy-saving insulation and waste-water recycling.
When completed, our new offices will provide space for Resurgence & Ecologist magazine and its editorial teams. We will use the former Chapel building for continuing education in environment, social justice, spirituality, the arts as well as for events. The gardens will be used for teaching organic and other methods of horticulture, and will provide outdoor space for meditation and nature-based learning. These are big plans and it will take time for our vision to become reality, but it has begun!
Meanwhile, we have been busy fulfilling the rewards from our crowdfunder. People who selected tickets to attend the Resurgence Talk by Jonathan Porritt at 42 acres enjoyed this event on 28th March. We are now planning the Wisdom Walk with Satish on Dartmoor, and an evening reception in May.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the generous spirits and open hearts of our donors. Satish Kumar said the response to our appeal was “heart-warming and humbling. It is wonderful that so many people want to support Resurgence. Whether they’ve been able to give a few pounds or much more, everyone’s support is important and we are very grateful.”
On behalf of the trustees and staff, we thank all those who so generously supported our crowdfunding campaign – and hope to welcome you to our planned new home in the years to come.
