September 2021 Farm Stay in Wilding Village
Stay overnight in a small cabin in the woods and immerse yourself in nature and life on Wild Roots Farm
The Wilding Village is a lovely collection of cabins in the woods a quarter-mile from the road on Wild Roots Farm. Originally built as intern homes they are now home to our immersion program participants and farm stay guests. These quiet houses are nestled above fern gully and are walking distance from the homestead, gardens and animals.
