The Green Scythe Fair site in November 2016 with the first floods of winter

Setting up June 2016

The tents and compost loos are going up and we have our trusted 4 legged friends and their new cart from Tinkers Bubble helping to move things in to set up this year as well as an electric van charged via the sun to reduce our carbon foot print.... so make sure you come on Sunday via your 2 legs (on bike or hike) or fill a vehicle to keep the CO2 of the event low! (10th June 2016)
