The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) near Machynlleth will be welcoming thousands of visitors free of charge over the winter months.
CAT, which is fully equipped with everything needed for a great day out, is waiving the entry fee this winter. Visitors can explore working examples of renewable energy, discover sustainable buildings and techniques, walk round organically managed gardens and learn about land management and the history of CAT on the Quarry Trail Walk through sustainably managed woodland.
CAT’s chief executive Adrian Ramsay said: “Waiving the entry fee to the CAT visitor centre will help inspire, inform and enable more people to engage with our work and access the important information about climate change and sustainable living.’’
CAT’s shop is packed full of great, sustainable gift ideas and the café is serving hot, tasty, vegetarian meals every day. CAT’s playground will also be open as normal to help the little ones run off extra energy.
Site tours will be taking place on three days throughout the week – check out the website http://visit.cat.org.uk/ for more details.
Entry to the site is via the Garden Steps which take visitors past CAT’s productive allotment fields. The water-balanced cliff railway does not operate during the winter period.
