If we are to bring about the transformational change that is needed in the world, we believe we need to address the underlying issues that are creating the degradation and decline of our Earth. In order for human beings to create a balanced relationship with the natural world we live in - we need to heal the inner nature within. By awakening our relationship with awe and wonder of the natural world, by invoking a wonder at the individual expressions that we each offer into life, and by celebrating the incredible fact that life even exists, we come back into a space of gratitude and humility in balance with all of life. Life is then recognised, honoured and cared for as truly Sacred and valuable.

The Lammas Earth Centre is committed to inspire, guide and support people from all walks of life in making the transition to living more lovingly with our earth, with each other, and ourselves. We aim to build upon the practical solutions demonstrated by the Lammas Ecovillage and the One Planet Development movement, addressing the emotional, mental and spiritual needs of our time. We aim to foster and encourage a gentle evolution in consciousness, to help serve humanity in making the much needed transition to natural harmony.

We have transformed a green desert into a place that attracts visitors from all over the world and we share beautiful natural timber framed buildings, compost toilets, solar drying wood-store, natural healing and retreat spaces to nourish and heal. We’ve hand built the foundations for the Lammas Earth Centre using stone hand-picked from a local quarry. The timber frame was constructed with local timber, and the design includes a minstrel gallery which will give an elevated view of the surrounding landscape. We’ve designed and fabricated a beautiful star form to receive the roof timbers that hallmarks the circular central space.

Every year, we work hard to develop the project in practical, tangible, visible ways. We have received incredible financial support over the years and feel deeply grateful that so many of you trust us and want to support our vision in growing.

Currently we are raising funding to build double doors on the Lammas Earth Centre. These doors would make a massive difference to the usability of the space in summer - we would be able to open them up and create a fresh breeze with a lovely view. The metal cradle would create a safe viewing balcony.

We would like to bring in local craftsmen to do this work - a carpenter (Stefan Proszynski) and a blacksmith (David Harland). The cost estimate for this work is £5900. 

All contributions toward this are really welcome - every £ helps.
