Mellow Grove is a smallholding and social enterprise where we produce food and offer community support and wellbeing activities in nature. Our business includes horticulture, a small quiet camping area, green burials, and the development of bereavement support and other therapeutic activities in nature.
We’ve designed our land-use from permaculture principles to be resilient and regenerative, using tree-planting to increase shelter, habitats, and biodiversity.
Our seasonal produce is from varieties that thrive in the natural conditions of our soil and site in the Culm Valley. We promote fertility and plant health without chemicals by growing our own compost ingredients and encouraging ecological balance.
As custodians of Hackpen Natural Burial Ground we want to give people an affordable and peaceful space for their ceremonies and reflections, where they can watch a new woodland grow over time.
And we hope to create a community of support and friendship where people can meet, learn, exercise and connect with each other and with nature.
