In line with government advice for reducing the spread of Covid-19, Earth Trust has made a few changes to the way we’re working. All staff are working from home unless it is absolutely necessary they attend one of our green spaces. This will mean that there will be a delay with sending out new membership packs. The Fundraising Team are still contactable so please do get in touch if you have any questions about Earth Trust Friendship.x
Earth Trust Friends are a vital part of our supporter community, helping to fund every aspect of our work. By becoming a Friend from as little as £2 per month, your subscriptions will be at the heart of Earth Trust, helping to fund vital projects across our work, including:
Caring for some of South Oxfordshire’s most iconic and important greenspaces, including the Wittenham Clumps, Little Wittenham Wood, Broad Arboretum, Neptune Wood, Thrupp Lake and four community nature reserves in Abingdon, Didcot and Wallingford. We ensure they are places that are not only free to access, but also where nature flourishes and people can spend time outdoors appreciating the wonders the countryside has to offer;
Safeguarding Paradise Wood, our unique genetic library of hardwood timber trees. This vital research woodland is having a significant impact on research into pests, disease and climate change;
Educating over 3,500 school children every year using our incredible outdoor classrooms and unique, specially devised programmes for children who have special educational needs or those who struggle in a traditional classroom setting;
Demonstrating sustainable farming on our 500 hectares of mixed use farmland and developing land management techniques that are both economically and environmentally sustainable;
Every greenspace we care for, every child we educate, every volunteer we support is thanks to the support of the Earth Trust Friends. Please become an Earth Trust Friend today.
