  • Description


    Come and help with our family garden and home with some fruit picking, preserving and general help around our family organic garden and home with a bit of diy and seasonal cooking . Space from Monday 19th September.
    Sharing skills and knowledge is a large part of our ethos and we have much knowledge to share on organic and sustainable food production, sustainable building, to grow, cook and eat healthy food, the indigenous culture and traditions of this Celtic land, the healing benefits of sound, and many spiritual practices of different traditions and cultures. Our place is particularly well suited to individuals who would be interested in discussing and sharing some of these ideas. Volunteers are also able to explore and connect with the attached area, which is a very special piece of land on 1.5 ha and has beautiful gardens and many interesting and sacred spaces including, a willow labyrinth, a large sacred geometry form, a celtic roundhouse, a stone circle, a sound/peace chamber, a sacred grove of trees, a Celtic area including a sweat lodge and triple spiral labyrinth and examples of permaculture and organic production.
