The Orange Tree Land Learning Project

LAND Region: 
EnglandYorkshire & The Humber
LAND Project Type: 
LAND Learner

The Orange Tree is a relaxation centre in North Yorkshire. We are in the process of developing as a LAND centre.
We are inspired to run courses (and try to live in such a way ourselves) that embrace the return to living as our true nature (through the practice of yoga/ meditation) and living sustainably on our planet (through the practice of Permaculture and Biodynamics). We try to present these ideas in such a way to make it as accessible to as many people as possible.

We are in the process of purchasing the property next door to us and some land adjacent to the site. The land will be developed using both Permaculture and Biodynamic methods. The food that we grow we will be able to serve to the guests who stay with us at the centre- and for ourselves. The chapel will be developed for self catered accommodation, a larger yoga studio and will also serve as an ideal venue for us to run Permaculture design/ Biodynamic courses in the future. The project will be a place where people can come and visit/ stay/ volunteer and learn about Permaculture/ Biodynamics/ Yoga/ Meditaion.
