Accommodation & Tariffs

The Open Shell Farm hosts visitors to help them to get introduced to permaculture and learn about sustainable living. There’s an introduction to the farm, the principles and techniques that have helped create a beautiful, productive space in what otherwise is a water stressed region. You can also volunteer to help with the farm activities – the list varies by season and the current plans at the farm.
