Highbury Farm Housing Co-op

Highbury Farm overlooks the beautiful Lower Wye Valley near the village of Redbrook. We are currently renovating the old farm house which houses some members and provides communal living space, while other people live in caravans and other low impact structures.

The co-op is inspired by a vision of finding ecological and socially sustainable ways of living together as a community. We are exploring how to manage our land without exploitation of animals and all food on the farm is vegetarian or vegan. We regard children and young people as an essential part of any sustainable community and are developing our policies to ensure that they and their parents are always able to participate in the running of the cooperative

Projects at Highbury Farm include renovating an old cider apple and perry pear orchard, managing local rare species rich unimproved grassland, working with English Nature to coppice in adjacent Highbury Woods (a national nature reserve), establishing new vegetable gardens and fruit tree plantings and designing and building systems to supply our own energy needs. We are also able to host small gatherings for like minded groups and would like to develop the site as a space for environmental education camps and courses.

We welcome WWOOFers and other working volunteers to help with our projects, but please contact us in advance to arrange a visit.

We have vacant accomodation and are currently looking for new members to join us.
