You’re welcomed to join the first national conference to build momentum AND provide tools and guidance to get forest gardens planted up and down the country.

Accommodation options

Oxford is a busy place and not super cheap but there are options that we have looked into;

  • Oxford Camping and Caravanning Club Site, 426 Abingdon Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX1 4XG. 1 mile away. 2 people in a tent on a pitch with a car for 1-night costs about £29.10. May need to book a few weeks in advance as can get busy.
  • YHA Oxford (right by station). About 2.5 miles away.
  • Acorn Guest house is permaculture friendly. 1 mile away
  • And you all know about Airbnb, Couch surfing etc.


Finally, as there are a number of NFGS members in Oxford we might be able to rustle up a few beds (hosting will be by invitation)
