Type of terrain/accessibility   

It’s a 10 min walk from the studio to the Food Forest.  The path slopes down for a bit, goes by a stream and then slopes up again into a field.  The ground is uneven and roughly mown.  It is not suitable for wheelchairs.  There are benches scattered around the Food Forest to sit on.


Boots if muddy.  Weather-appropriate clothing.

The Food Forest doesn’t mind the weather 😉  If wet visitors are welcome to spend more time in the studio chatting, eating cake and drinking tea.
