Giovanna and Jamin will be entertaining them! The bedrooms in the main house have about six beds each. The priority for these rooms will be given to the families, everyone else will be accommodated in a house about twenty minutes from the meeting place (with a van/taxi service), at local WWOOF farms or on the floor in the conference room. Please bring cots / mattresses for babies and young children.
2) if and what you intend to bring to the market and as food to share, for those arriving by car already prepared dishes would be advisable, we are doing all the catering this year so we ask everyone to bring a contribution for the meal.
