  • Description


    Hello! 🌞

    We are a family living in a spacious home that was once a dairy factory and is now a PALACE (sorta). We have a big vegetable garden, an orchard full of fruit trees (not currently in season), a big lake that’s perfect for canoeing and nice for a swim (but its super salty), a variety of animals both big and small, and a home that will make you feel welcome.

    The winter months are finally coming to an end and we are beginning to come out of hibernation! Our main event of the year BELTANE is held in November, but there is much to do in preparation before this. We will start taking Workaways soon to help with pre-festival work. The longer that you can stay the better! Those that can come early and stay on until after the festival are prioritised as we love to have all the help before, during and after the event that we can.

    We are a happy crew who like to be productive and creative, and we love having people stay who share these values. We also enjoy cooking together and sharing meals, our kitchen is always the busiest room of the house!

    Priorities at this time of year include (but not limited to)
    ~Picking olives and preserving them
    ~Planting garlic
    ~Working on the vegetable garden
    ~Cooking food and maintaining a functional kitchen
    ~Keeping the animals fed + entertained + loved
    ~Help with never ending house renovations
    ~Organising the costume and craft rooms
    ~An abundance of creative DIY projects.
    ~Lake forshore cleanup
    ~ Festival decor creating

    We look forward to connecting with you!

    ~~~~ Sometimes the house is busy and full of people and activities, other times it is quiet with only a few of us here. Both are lovely in their own way. It's constantly changing so you have to be prepared for both ~~~~~
