    CAT is an educational charity dedicated to researching and communicating positive solutions for environmental change. CAT’s visitor centre demonstrates practical solutions for sustainability. It covers all aspects of green living: environmental building, eco-sanitation, woodland management, renewable energy, energy efficiency and organic growing. A spectacular water-balanced railway delivers visitors to the CAT site, providing the first stop for those interested in discovering sustainable technologies via exciting and interactive hands-on displays. These are continually updated to reflect the changes and needs of a society increasingly aware of the need to adopt sustainable technologies and lifestyles. In the summer months there are guided tours, or individual audio-tours are available. The courses taught at CAT’s Graduate School of the Environment are respected across the world, providing a big-picture, integrated approach to sustainability and the knowledge, skills, inspiration and networks to make a real difference in your chosen field. A series of short courses runs alongside the Graduate School. CAT also provides information resources, an online shop, venue hire and group visits for schools.

  • Sheepdrove Organic Farm & Eco Conference Centre

    Email:

    Sustainable, organic and environmentally sound, Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre combines exceptional surroundings with the most advanced technology and attentive service to make your event a complete success. The conference centre is housed in a beautiful, eco-friendly building set at the heart of a 2,500 acre working organic farm,  surrounded by fields and woodlands, with spectacular views across rolling Berkshire downland. This purpose-built conference environment has state of the art presentation equipment and conference facilities for between nine and 200 delegates. Each room offers a unique space for different styles of meeting – and there are plenty of break out areas. In the vaulted dining room, food cooked from organic produce grown and raised on the farm is served. Visitors can take farm tours and see how an organic system works. Or they can simply wander through grassy meadows, past grazing animals and native woodland, along the reed beds which transform waste water from the conference centre into a clear, clean lake. Poultry, beef, lamb, mutton and pork are reared on the farm and processed to high standards in terms of welfare and meat quality. It is all Soil Association-registered and completely GMO-free. Sheepdrove also has a butchers and shop in London (http://sheepdrove.com/our-london-shop/) selling organic and GMO-free meat reared on the farm. The store also stocks fine organic wine, their own Sheepdrove honey, preserves, organic wholemeal flour, organic eggs, game (when in season), and an eclectic collection of books.
