  • Description


    We are two lovely Pagan elders, spiritually mature, humanly aware, warm, wise, and nurturing. We are doing our best to restore 6 acres of farm yards into viable food and herb gardens. We can offer guest room (sleeps 2-4) in our clean and beautiful farm house and/or sheltered camping space. We can prepare vegan or conventional meals, keep you hydrated, and sing your praises while you work. So, stay for free, (bring a bit of your own food and we will share what we can), help us with the digging etc, learn some great skills, and leave with a renewed faith in humanity and an abundance of self love.
