Put your roots down and live lightly

Heartwood is an old dairy farm with 35 acres of land: woods, pasture, wetland, streams, orchards and gardens. We garden and grow food together and manage our woodland and hay fields.
We eat a vegetarian dinner together five days a week in the communal house. On Wednesdays we have our community meeting and workday. We share the care of two goats, a pony (who helps us with working the land and woodland managemet), chickens , ducks, sheep, a small dog and many cats! Some of us car share.
