We facilitate tours of the site and the biomes.

Our site tours are guided by an expert who provides technical insight into how the site operates. This includes aspects such as water and energy systems. These experts share their experiences, giving your students first hand insight into our sustainability journey, as we trial cutting edge sustainable practises in the real world. Students will also be exposed to possible careers pathways on offer through the lens of a large charity, a social enterprise and a sustainable business.

Alternatively, head into the biomes with an expert to hear how our lives are linked to the natural world and how we can play a positive role in protecting the natural systems that keep us alive. These interactive tours will help develop understanding, spark curiosity and stimulate lively conversations on topics ranging from regenerative stewardship, biodiversity, climate change, food security, conservation, the planetary emergency and living in harmony with nature.
