    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Lime Tree Farm Nature Reserve has been a supporter of ecology and sustainability for over 25 years. Visitors use the unique environment for a multitude of uses, both educational and social.

    A recent addition to Lime Tree has been the very successful astronomical observatory, which has already seen over 1000 visitors coming along to marvel at the beautiful dark skies that the site enjoys.

    Unfortunately the British weather doesn't always allow us to observe the skies and so a full immersion cinema/planetarium has been proposed to simulate the night sky, show educational films and be used as a multifunctional space for groups from all walks of life.

    This permanently installed building would be unique to the local area and would benefit schools, the scouting movement, community groups and families across the region.

    Lime Tree Farm Earth & Sky is a registered Community Interest Company number 10434490
