The Centre was opened in July 1989 by Professor David Bellamy. The staff team includes over 200 full and part-time volunteers (some of whome may have learning difficulties or be in need of confidence building). These volunteers have helped create a wildlife habitat with a large pond and marsh area, planted areas of woodland, established spring and summer meadows, developed accessible organic vegetable gardens, greenhouse and forest garden, planned and built alternative energy, composting and recycling displays, as well as running innovative environmental education activities. The Centre is open to the public, hosts school visits and holds holiday activities.
