The Campus

Our programmes are developed with a campus-wide approach, to create impactful educational experiences.  From short courses to small festivals, organisational away days to cultural retreats, the grounds, accommodation, and facilities provide a unique space for events.

The Selgars Mill campus comprises a beautiful converted 19th-century mill house with cottages, set in eight acres of meadows and woodland in the Culm valley in Mid Devon.

Our Ethical Policies

Accessibility

We are a not-for-profit worker co-operative, with any surplus reinvested in our educational programmes.

 

Our fully vegetarian site is zero to landfill, using as many refillable products as possible. We grow food for residential staff and cut flowers for the business in the Edible Classroom, our on-site permaculture garden, using no-dig, chemical-free methods.

 

Electricity is generated on-site with rooftop photovoltaics or comes from renewable sources. Heating is provided with a biomass boiler.

 

Our procurement is strictly local, ecological, and from other co-operatives wherever possible. We bank with the Co-operative Bank and use the Phone Co-op for our telecoms.

There is level access to the Event Barn, Assembly Rooms on the ground floor of the mill (where there is an accessible toilet) and most outside spaces. There is currently stepped access only to the Training Space and accommodation in the mill.

 

If you have any accessibility needs, get in touch with us and we will do all we can to make this an accessible venue.
