HoBB “What’s Happening” creative breaks

workshopsFriends, and members of ‘wwoof’, regularly visit the HoBB. Some chill and relax whilst others enjoy a creative break and a taste of whatever’s going on at the time.

It is fun to try out something new and we are regularly involved in inspiring activities.

Our art and craft based activities are practical as we are working hard to make the HoBB into a useful place for friends to relax and work out. The HoBB is being designed to feel ‘enchanted’ – an atmosphere of intimate spaces where the spirit of open-minded enquiry can flourish. You are welcome to create a moment and surprise yourself by giving us a hand on ‘whatever’s next’.

The nature around here is inspiring whether you explore the rolling hills on foot or contemplate the essential nature of human existence by a roaring open fire in winter between bites of roasted chestnut and Welsh pancakes.

Everyone should take the opportunity to develop their own lifestyle and examine the way they ‘walk the walk’ because the journey ahead should be full of fun and progressive activity.

We learn as we go and culture new friends who come to discuss their projects and also give us a hand with ours; you are welcome to contact us and find out “What’s Happening” now. If you feel like sharing time at the HoBB, get in touch.

Is it a Well? Is it a Spring?

IMAGENAMEHEREA constant trickle of water runs across the water meadow above us and we aim to put this water source to good use year round in the HoBB Gardens. It once supplied the HoBB kitchen a very long time ago but since mains water was connected, the system has eroded.

A new concrete base has been laid only big enough to build a collection tank upon. From this point, the water that overflows will be diverted to a storage tank and will supply a drinking trough for the Black Sheep.

Most of the HoBB Gardens are below this holding tank level so by gravity we should be able to water the lot! After storage systems are in place, we’ll work out the connecting piping and hope that as each winter arrives and we have drain down the entire system, none of the pipes retain water that freezes and opens any joints.

Can you detect an idea growing in my mind for a “Plumber’s Creativity Weekend” ???? Interested water enthusiasts should make themselves known and contact us!
