Matt came to this place with inspiration, but never having built anything bigger than a compost heap. The buildings that have taken shape here are a testament to the kindness, adventurous spirit and craftmanship of dozens of helpers. A particular debt is owed to Meyrick and Charlie (MC-Rustics) whose signature is on every building here.

Many other good people have helped us with machinery, with livestock issues, with pruning, with coppicing.

If you’d like to pitch in then get in touch. We accept volunteers through the WWOOFing scheme from April to October but are open to all offers of assistance!
