What we do

Earth Trust in action – standing up for nature

Earth Trust is an environmental learning charity. We are the proud guardian of 500 hectares of farmland, woodland and wetland on the bank of the River Thames. We champion accessible natural green spaces and our mission is to give you the opportunity to engage with the environment through the beautiful green spaces we look after.

We are one of the most highly visited free to access green space in the South East, with over 150,000 visits per annum.  We are a working farm and we strive to strike a balance between farming, conservation and provision of accessible natural green spaces for everyone to enjoy.

Experiences that interpret the environment and help people discover more about why and how to protect it are at the heart of what Earth Trust does. We are looking for new and innovative ways to stimulate conversations about the health and wellbeing benefits of nature; food production and farming; ecosystem restoration; and natural resource management by engaging people in green spaces.

Whave a range of work programmes that demonstrate our approach to championing diverse green spaces. You can find out more about these below:
