This scenic vista at the Burley Farms in Epping is part of the Southeast Land Trust's new headquarters and education complex.

EPPING — Brian Hart, govt director of the Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire, admits there are some issues he will pass up about becoming headquartered in downtown Exeter.

“I will skip Donut Adore,” he reported. 

But as he gazed all-around the 237 acres of SELT’s new digs he extra, “This is a possibility for us to engage men and women and elevate a technology of people today who feel in our values.”

SELT’s acquisition of the Burley Farm virtually 7 several years back was the beginning of a aspiration culminating final week, when development started on the Mathey Heart for Persons and Character at Barley Farms. The complex is not only located in the Middle of the Universe, but in the heart of SELT’s spot of support.

Brian Hart, executive director of SELT, makes a point during a tour of the nonprofit's new digs on North River Road in Epping.

As he strolled alongside just one of the wooded lanes, Hart described that the group, which previously rented area from the Congregational Church of Exeter, knew it was managing out of space as much back again as 2014. 

“The best problem was to be on land we owned,” he reported.  

The organization purchased the former Demeritt Insurance plan setting up as a put-holder, but the board and employees knew they finally wished to be out on the land they were being hoping to maintain.
