Sandy completed a Permaculture design course at Plan-It-Earth back in 2010 which has made us look carefully at the way we use the land. Gary completed a 26 week one day course on Organic Fruit and Vegetable growing based at the nearby National Trust gardens of Trengwainton in the winter and spring of 2011
Our wild flower meadow is as stunning at night to lay on the loungers and marvel at the stars as it is the day with its abundance of wild flowers
