As an Educational Centre for Sustainable Living, Monkton Wyld Court today hosts a range of courses, conferences and gatherings for adults, families and children. A Steiner kindergarten, crafts shop and calendar of regular events add to this unique resource for the local community.
From bee-keeping to yoga, Monkton's programme promotes low-impact, earth-centred skills for changing modern life. Family weeks with themes like bushcraft and fossil-hunting prove especially popular. We also host venue bookings and educational visits from the local area and further afield.
Meals are lovingly prepared in the house kitchen using fresh organic ingredients from the Court’s own Victorian walled garden, orchards and farm and from other local producers.
The Court is managed by an intentional community with the help of enthusiastic volunteers and overseen by a board of trustees. We work to develop and promote a lifestyle based on mutual respect for each other and for the wider community and environment, and are committed to learning about sustainable, responsible life choices and striving to adopt them in our daily lives. Community decisions are made by consensus, and new members are brought in through a gradual process that begins with an initial volunteering visit.
This group does not have any discussions yet.
