The St Margaret's Bay Trust is an education and environmental charity which owns and manages The Pines Calyx™, a conference, training and events venue located within the 6 acre Pines Garden.
The Pines Garden uses both old and new models for sustainable land management and the garden has been run organically since 2002. This is far more than just not using herbicides and pesticides, with emphasis placed on working in harmony with the natural systems, composting, recycling and learning how to use natural predators to control pests.
The garden is a 6-acre arboretum-like garden with, as the name suggests, a range of conifers. The Kitchen Garden has over 40 different species of fruit with exotics as well as natives. There are paths for buggy and wheelchair access and lots of seating for visitors to come and unwind at any time of the year.
