The Caravan garden at the Abbotts was, three years ago, a mass of brambles, nettles and docks, interspersed with self seeded sycamore and buddleia. The renovation included the rescue of a derelict wooden greenhouse and some heavy duty earth moving.

 Now there is an evolving vegetable plot, a small additional greenhouse due for replacement, and a 48 sq.m. insulated greenhouse which contains an aquaponics garden in the process of building. The finished project should be available to view this time next year! The emphasis is on environmentally sustainable food production with global warming lurking in the background. The entire site uses multiple solar PV and Thermal panels. The main house uses a biomass boiler. The caravan and garden supply is on a 100% renewable tariff, and the aquaponics system has a large solar thermal panel waiting to be connected.

 

 Visitors should be aware that the lane becomes very bumpy, so very slow driving is recommended.  Satnav using the post code will take you to the wrong place, so follow directions, taking the turn by Smokey Joe’s, then turning left into the farm lane a few hundred yards later. If lost, phone 07775 761717
