STAYING ON THE FARM – THINGS TO BRING WITH YOU
In addition to all your usual traveling gear we suggest you bring:
- A small lock for the door of the capsule. A number lock is very good especially if there are two of you.
- A good torch. This is really essential as even if you have a solar lamp they are rather large to carry around at night. A rechargeable one will be very good as it will save you having to throw away batteries. A headlight is very useful especially if you cycle at night.
- Gardening gloves; many people find these very useful and while we do have some available they tend to wear out rather quickly. If you can leave yours behind for others, or maybe bring an extra pair, that would be very helpful. Please make sure you don’t bring fur lined gardening gloves though – they are far too hot to use in this climate.
- A hat for wearing while working in the garden – especially when the sun shines.
Bedding: We have a certain quantity of bedding but often find that during the busy time of year it starts to run out. We do not have very many blankets (they are bulky and difficult to store for the few weeks that we need them each year) so if you come during the very cool time over Christmas and the New Year it would be good if you could bring something to keep you warm at night – maybe a sleeping bag. We have mosquito nets, but again during the busy time we sometimes run out.
