  • Description

    Description

    So, what to say? We are a family of four, Mum Dad two kids age 12 and 14 and a Dog that likes lots of attention plus two Cats and chickens. We also have extended family who sometimes stay with us. We are a vegetarian household with a love for all animals and a non Smoking household.
    We organise Festivals/community gatherings and camps in the summer and run yoga and sound workshops throughout the year. We are also nearly finished constructing a space at our house for running workshops that we may need some help with.
