"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
Restricted by our premises, we are currently only able to accommodate 15 children at The Treehouse School. However, the demand is such that we are now able to work towards achieving our vision of providing more children with an alternative education, in an alternative setting. The Trustees are planning to expand by building an exciting new eco-school to enable us to offer this type of education to more local children and their families. We believe if we provide children with a low carbon school it will enable them to learn first-hand how they can make a positive impact on their environment.
As we approach our tenth birthday, The Trust continues to be overwhelmed by the level of support it has received from the local community; we are still non fee paying and unable to access any public funding. This support has included being gifted a plot of land in the heart of the village, by a family who are passionate about education, health and the environment. We are delighted to announce that thanks to the hard work of an ever growing army of committed volunteers and parents, that our first eco-pod has now been delivered to this site. Our next challenge is to raise the money for a further two eco-pods, enabling the school to move and double its number on roll. Inspired by Kyle MacDonald's success, trading from a paperclip to securing a house, The Treehouse have started their own trading. We invited people to make offers for a pencil and have already successfully exchanged it for a computer monitor! To track the progress of this trading strategy follow us on Facebook, Tik Tok and Instagram. You can watch our videos below.
