What's on at The Fold

Dear friends,

We hope you are all making the most of this wonderful summer we have been blessed with (okay so it's raining as I type this, but we have been lucky!). The holidays are now in full swing and we've got lots coming up to keep you entertained and your mind curious. 

Below you will find the things that are happening at The Fold this month. Among them is an experience in sound, a wellness retreat for women and new goodies in the farm shop!

We hope this newsletter finds you well and we wish you lots of summer joy,
The Fold crew

Depending on the season, what's happening in the garden and the curiosity of the children we might plant seeds, harvest produce, dig holes, prepare our own snacks, make things out of natural materials, meet animals, play in the fields, sing songs or listen to stories.

A simple vegan and gluten free lunch will be provided. We welcome children of all ages. Please come dressed to get dirty and be comfortable in all weather.

There are countless opportunities for children and adults to learn and grow through new experiences.
