Celebrating our Friends
We’re celebrating Earth Trust Friends with a new season of exclusive Friends events.
We protect and champion accessible green spaces. We are proud guardian to some of Oxfordshire’s most iconic landscapes including the Wittenham Clumps and have pioneered research using our unique genetic living library, Paradise Wood.
Why become a Friend?
Many of our Friends join after having seen the impact of our work first hand. From engagement work with local schools, access to amazing green spaces, to wetland creation and wildflower meadow maintenance, there is something to inspire everyone.
By supporting us you help us open the gates to children and young people who have few opportunities to access nature. Our Countryside Skills course offers pupils with special educational needs and those struggling in a typical school setting, a sense of achievement and accreditation through practical outdoor learning.
Becoming an Earth Trust Friend costs as little as £2 per month and helps support all of this vital work and more, throughout the year.
By becoming a friend you also gain access to our exclusive events, designed to give behind the scenes access to our unique landscapes.
Later this month, our expert Head of Land Management, Chris Parker, will guide Friends through a Food and Farming Walk. With almost 15 years of land management experience at Earth Trust, there is no one that knows our farm and produce like Chris Parker. He will spend the afternoon sharing this knowledge and giving our Friends specialist insight into how we maintain the delicate balance between sustainable farming, conservation and public access across our farm.
In October Friends will also have the opportunity to explore Wallingford Castle Meadows with our Community reserves Warden Lucy Tomkinson and Wallingford Museum Creator and local history expert, Judy Dewey. The group will explore the grounds and find out how the medieval castle shaped the meadows we care for today.
