Wonderful to visit St Werburgh's City Farm in Bristol, the first city farm outside London in the UK.
55,000 people visit the farm each year, for free (donations very welcome), and there are many opportunities to volunteer, go to workshops and events about growing and cooking, and one can even get married there! the city farm run youth and family events, helping people get into nature and get their hands into soil, and educating on the importance of knowing where your food comes from. There are horticultural programs for people with mental health concerns and learning difficulties, and seasonal celebrations.
I loved the pub nearby, with the seeing tree outside and the murals painted all over it, and the funky eco housing all around the site.
Well worth a visit!
Tinker's Bubble is a community and smallholding of around 40 acres near Yeovil, Somerset.
I visited for their open day and could not stop smiling the whole time I was there...
such an incredible place!
Findhorn is an Eco Community
located about an hour from Inverness, Scotland, towards Moray Bay.
I took a trip there with my cousin and auntie.
I had heard of the place but not read too much about it,
wanting to get a feel for what it is really like.
So we turned up with no expectation,
other than that we would probably stay for a few hours then go somewhere else-
but over 7 hours later we were still there!
