Green and Away are moving to a new location about 15 miles from the 2006 site and 4 miles from Worcester with better transport links. It will be in a beautiful field on an organically run farm with a river and mature trees.
Green & Away is Britian’s only eco-friendly tented conference centre. The centre is built anew every summer in a hay meadow on an organic smallholding. The centre is set up as a showcase of sustainable living, and the staff are volunteers who enjoy working to facilitate environmental and social change.
The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. The marquees and yurts for lectures and workshops are arranged around a central meeting area and campfire. There is a licensed bar and there are hot showers, washing facilities and composting toilets. All electricity on site is sun or wind generated. Wireless internet access is available.
The food is vegetarian and mostly organic, grown on site or sourced from local suppliers. Local beer and cider, organic wine and soft drinks are available at the bar.
