Temple Druid community is set in 56 acres in the foothills of the Preseli Mountains.  Our aim is to be a year-round Therapeutic and Educational Centre within a sustainable farm, woodland environment, orchard and kitchen garden. The majority of our projects have a particular focus of working with vulnerable children, young people, and their families. We work with the Permaculture ethics of earth care, people care, and a fair share for everyone. We are dreaming into the future and making tentative plans for the renovation and extension so the grade II listed house; planting trees and creating forest gardens; improving growing areas and composting -always from the perspective of being guardians of this land, and wanting to keep the beauty alive and eventually pass on the ever-healthier land to the next generation.   We are also looking for renters who are interested in finding out more about community living and volunteers to help with growing vegetables, managing the woodlands and building/diy.    We are also looking for new director/members and, at the moment, this does require a financial investment into Temple Druid Ltd. But we do want prospective director/members to rent for at least 1.5yrs before considering investing any money into Temple Druid.      Whilst it is not necessary to have experience in a particular area of land stewardship, working with vulnerable people, community living, business management, teaching and renovations, the current community would greatly benefit from people with those skills or a can-do attitude!   For further information see our website and give us a call.

Temple Druid Community is currently looking for new members

Over the next five years we will be looking for new people to join us. Initially we would be interested in people with some capital to invest in order to pay off existing loans. After this we may be in a position to offer membership to those without capital investment. Whilst it is not necessary to have experience in a particular area of community living and renovations, the current community would greatly benefit from people with those skills. The process of applying to live in the community includes the following:Phase one: Initial request for consideration to the group. Day visit and information sharing. Weekend visit and joining in activities. Group decision.Phase two: Further weekend visit. Trial period. Group decision.
