CAT is concerned with the search for globally sustainable, whole and ecologically sound technologies and ways of life.
The Centre's 40 acre site (seven acres on public display) has working examples of wind, water and solar power, energy conservation, environmentally sound buildings, self build, organic growing and alternative sewage systems. You arrive on the site by having a ride on a fantastic water balanced cliff railway.
