    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Connection with tranquility and nature on a beautiful piece of land. with views of Glastonbury Tor about 2 miles from Glastonbury. I am very into all things natural and eating healthy food I love green juices, grow alos vera in a polytunnel. Also an opportunity to spend time in unique Glastonbury, famous spiritual/ magical/ mystical town. My partner and myself are both quite alternative types. My partner is multiskilled tree surgeon, plumber can do mechanics, has installed the off grid solar pumps on our field . I can explain about grafting fruit trees also hardwood and soft wood propagation techniques.
