Smallholding near Durham City owned and managed by a workers coop using a permaculture approach. We produce food & crafts and provide courses.
Our food activities include growing veg and salad in our one acre garden, running a veg box scheme supplying 40 households each week, looking after our hen flock who provide eggs for our veg customers, and we also have a flock of sheep and plenty of fruit trees.
Our craft activities include wood, willow and wool. We make items for sale such as wooden bowls, willow baskets and felt fairies.
Our courses include teaching these craft skills in schools, running workshops at events and at our smallholding. We also teach permaculture, green building, composting, fruit tree grafting, hedgelaying.
We are very active in the local transition and food scene in Durham.
