We are a community project based in Gweek, South West Cornwall. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint by using & encouraging renewable energy, sustainable development, recycling, car sharing, energy efficiency, eating wisely and upcycling. Our onsite community lives a low-impact lifestyle & works on the project in exchange for living here.
Our main focus is our Day Centre for adults with additional needs. We also process salvaged wood, hire out marquees and run two non-profit associations onsite, namely THE BIG TENT FESTIVAL at Holifield (previously known as Holifield Camping Events) & ROOTS One Planet Thinkers Collective.
Roots invites you to join : the conversation, a space for discussing topics relating to ‘a greener way of life’. Or you can follow us on our Facebook page.
Please see this page for current job opportunities.
We run two main events – Holifair Festival, which is our larger, community festival, and THE BIG TENT FESTIVAL, which is a not for profit festival aimed at people with special needs, their carers and families. We run smaller events such as open days and apple days too.
