Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Dear Friends,

The leaves are falling and the first frost is here. Winter is coming and the time to plant new life is drawing closer.

We invite you to come and spend a weekend with old friends and new. This December we are hosting a community tree planting weekend at the wonderful Koa Tree Camp in North Devon. Our aim, with your help is to plant 1500 trees to establish hedgrows and create new woodland.

A 26 acre smallholding on the North Devon Coast, Koa Tree Camp has been operating as a luxury campsite for the past 4 years. This year sees the launch of an exciting new social enterprise, The Koa Tree Project. Founder Andy Thorne will be sharing his vision for the farm and the project over the course of the weekend, including an evening talk.

A Friends Weekend at Koa is about sharing experiences and making connections. Connections with the land and with people. All are welcome, children especially (and they come free of course).

Accomodation is in Geodesic domes and wood cabins. Both are well insulated and have wood-burners to keep you cosy in the winter nights. There are plenty of bathrooms with hot baths and showers and a huge living area where food is prepared and shared.

We look forward to seeing you there
