Developed over 20 years, this is a hope filled place is packed with ideas to help your family thrive in an environment friendly home and garden.

We believe everyone can make a difference in their own backyard. Shop with confidence - over the last decade we have sought out wonderful cutting edge products to make your home safer and help the environment. We study the whole life cycle of products - what they are made of and how they are made, how well they work and what happens when they are disposed of. This true cost, whole life cycle, approach means that we are confident that what you can find here is a wise choice.

We believe that if every one takes action on their patch we could solve many environmental challenges- ie not wait for “them in power” to do something. Features include things you can do for free clever re-using of all kinds of things, water saving measures, energy efficiency – and effective technologies such as sheep’s wool insulation, a grass roof, underfloor heating, solar thermal and solar photo voltaic panels, rainwater harvesting, organically managed garden full of wildlife, climate change awareness measures, flood control such as paving to absorb rain, natural paints and wood treatments to minimize toxic load in the house, Cut aways in the house show the detailing- eg dry lining, straw boards, lime render etc. We have achieved all this in harmony with the beauty of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and in the conservation area of Bourton on the Water.

Spirirtual values are important in how humans operate on the planet- every person has a spiritual life- as the Bob Dylan song says "You gotta serve somebody". We pray here every day and we take a christian perspective that people matter and we have a moral duty to be stewards of the Earth and not trash and harm Earth's precious life in all its abundance.
