Abundant Life

Foxhole from the air

In January 2016 The Dartington Hall Trust announced that its partnership with Sanctuary Group on Abundant Life had ended.

Dartington is now reviewing how to realise the vision at the heart of the project, and reconsidering options for the Foxhole site where Abundant Life was to be based. This will form part of our wider Estate Framework, a significant exercise in envisioning the future look and purpose of the whole estate and in creating a more sustainable Dartington.

We have now closed registrations of interest in the scheme as we work towards creating an estate that works to the following principles:

  1. Create places for exchange
  2. Build an integrated community that offers a ‘many-sided’ approach to livelihood
  3. Work with nature
  4. Joy of the new and reverence for the old
  5. Be a place of experimentation

Those already signed up to the Abundant Life mailing list will be contacted soon with further information.
