Corporate volunteer & CSR projects include

Waterfall cascade

Four pools cascade down the hill to the lake. The bottom pool has a leak so it needs to be emptied and restored – bringing back an important part of the garden’s biodiversity for frogs, toads, dragonflies and other water-dependent species.

Fruit cage

This area will provide us with organic soft fruits during the summer and autumn months – helping us serve the freshest natural produce to our customers at the Pines Garden Tea Room and The Pines Calyx as well as excess produce for making preserves and pickles.

Forest garden

This area will promote woodland biodiversity within the garden – rejuvenating the trees through careful coppicing and creating glades to allow ground flora to flourish and taller grasses to thrive. All of these areas provide unique habitats for an array of species.

Clay rendering

One day Clay Plaster Workshop, learn how to source, test, mix and apply clay render to create a variety of finishes. It is a practical workshop. As you can see in the video this is a very ‘hands-on’ day of fun and team bonding!

Our leadership team volunteered with The Bay Trust, and I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic experience it was.”


Improving biodiversity with your help!
