About Village Days

In 2018 our Open Days have a new format- they are now the two-monthly and are called Village Days.

As well as the traditional site tours and presentation, now you can also meet a co-op member for an in-depth discussion, see members in action (and maybe join in).  Each month there are different activities. Past Village days have included building with straw bales, checking beehives, finding edible weeds, repairing bikes, sharpening tools, digging drainage, selling plants and practising meditation.
