I am a horticultural tutor, teaching organics and environment, active in community garden projects and promote grow your own. Our field is 1.5 miles from our house on the way into town. People can camp/caravan at the field, where we have a composting loo and sink. People might be able to stay at the house, depending on how much space we have at the time as we do B&B. We always have a bike at the field, and it takes no time from there to get into town.
