The  Gaia Trust

Bringing nature and people together since 1988

The Gaia Trust believes that wildlife conservation alone is not enough, but that people must be engaged and informed in order for biodiversity to be valued and preserved by future generations, and that land can be managed sustainably through changing times.

Through the properties now under our protection in Cornwall and Devon, we work to ensure that the land is appropriately managed in each case, including the active reversion of intensively farmed land.

The Gaia Trust’s most accessible properties are Treraven Farm in the Camel Valley near Wadebridge  in North Cornwall and Home Farm Marsh on the Tarka Trail near Bideford in North Devon. The Gaia Trust also owns Bodwannick Manor Farm in the Camel Valley and  Chark Moor near Lostwithiel,  which was part of the 2003-2008 Mid Cornwall Moors LIFE Project.
