St Nicks

Centre for nature and green living

St Nicks featured in The Guardian

The Guardian article

We’re very pleased to have been featured in The Guardian in an article on 10 car-free trips to inspiring eco-friendly places in the UK, alongside the likes of CAT in Wales and Knepp Wildland. Amongst other things Phoebe Taplin says: “It’s startling to remember the city centre is just a mile away. These nine hectares of urban nature reserve, now alive with birdsong and wildflowers, were once York’s rubbish tip… The little environment centre opened in 2000 with what were then cutting-edge features: living roof, passive solar design, renewable energy and compost loos. It still has a utopian feel, with its enthusiastic volunteers and jars of homemade chutney.”
