Outside The Fold

A supportive space

Our intention is to provide a supportive space that helps and inspires us to make the changes we need to make in order to achieve sustainable, peaceful and fulfilling lives for ourselves and our society on this planet. We seek to create a culture of reverence for life – a culture in which we are guided by gratitude and care for our planet and the ecosystems that give us life.


We recognise that, as individuals, we need to take responsibility for the health of ourselves, of each other and that of the ecosystems we are a part of. We see the route to achieving this through connection with nature (both within and without), through the liberation of our innate creativity, through the support of a local economy and a redefinition of success.
