For many years we have been growing for our own use and for market a wide

permaculturists with a passion for fresh, home-grown foods and a desire to share our
knowledge with others. You will have the opportunity to see our garden in its
prime, with maximum diversity of foods. You will also get to sample a wide

featuring foods straight from the garden! All foods included in the meals

Our pond will also be available for swimming.
