New for 2022 is our new Community Tent, located in the East Field towards the top of the ring of stalls around the Acoustic Stage near the Gate 1 entrance. It is actually labelled LWA Tent in the site plan, because our friends at the Land Workers Alliance were going to be running it, but sadly had to pull out quite late in the day. Instead we are delighted that the Community Tent will be filled with a great mix of local green initiatives and local food producers – part local green projects and part local farmers market!
Love Community Healing. A new project based between Street and Glastonbury with the aim to set up a no to low cost herbal clinic.

A small off-grid woodland community in Somerset using environmentally sound methods of working the land without using fossil fuels.
