This page details ways in which you can participate in the work of the quinta financially, and by doing so, perform a vitally important and very much appreciated enabling role.

Sponsor one of our projects

We are making opportunities available to help the quinta continue its recovery from the fires and to move into the next phase of its development as an ecoliteracy and solutions-oriented education centre.

Below is a selection of short, medium and longer-term projects in which you can get involved in a specific and targeted way. The projects will change regularly (we hope!) as projects are completed and we add more. Sponsors of individual projects will be kept informed with regular updates on their chosen project as we move forward.

Some of these projects will be specific to the quinta and others will involve the quinta’s work in the wider community.

Sponsorship and promotional opportunities for courses and events might also be explored.

If this area interests you, please sign up to our mailing list (below) and we will keep you informed of developments.

If a specific project interests you, then you can donate by first registering and logging in, then click/tap on the project of your choice in the carousel above. You can either donate directly through PayPal or “offline”. If you chose the “offline” option, I will email you with details for direct payment. Or you can simply use the bank details below.


If you would like to just donate – either with a one-off donation or on a regular basis – without a focus on a specific project, then this is also possible and hugely appreciated.

Funds can be sent through PayPal to or via this button …

Regular donations can also be set up via PayPal. You’re given the option when you use the button above.

Or you can send directly to my bank account:
