The Gardens are for people to come and visit and be in quiet. Nature and cows and slow growing permaculture gardens around them. An artists retreat, somewhere to write book, thesis or app, or just somewhere peaceful to be.It is also for building skills such as off grid solar, permaculture gardening and natural building. To come stay at the Gardens you must book ahead. The more time ahead the greater chance it can happen when you want it. Places are limited at most times, however space is also usually available.
Pay can be organised but would probably rather you helped a little instead.
