Earthtime’s UP Project now has its own independent website which is updated regularly at

The part of the Earthtime website about the Up Project which you are at now still has useful information on but has not been updated since May 2018


We have established a small library of some 300 specialist books on topics including outdoor education, natural building, permaculture & self-sufficiency, natural history, environmental philosophy, crafts, woodworking, recycling & upcycling etc.

The books are free to borrow by Eco-library members and the library at our West Lodge office in Cooper Park Elgin (next to the library) is open every first and third Tuesday of the month 12-2pm, and at other times by arrangement. Becoming a member costs just £1, and you need to bring two forms of ID with you, one photographic and one with your address on, to join.

You can find a list of book titles available at the Eco-library here.
