From Jackie Carpenter’s newsletter

New readers can read more about Jackie’s project here.


I have been living at Trelay Cohousing for over 11 years. This year we had the Farmhouse refurbished, so Margot moved into my tiny wooden house (see left) and I moved into my camper van, leading to a chaotic few months when I couldn’t find anything.

The Farmhouse work is coming on wonderfully well, but Margot is still in the tiny house and now I am in the Shack. I am on the UK Cohousing Network Board of Directors and work to promote cohousing – a good way of life.

The cold killed many of the pests so my work in the veggie patch was well-rewarded – until the drought resulted in deer coming in and eating some plants to ground level.

I spent three hours per day watering during the drought growing some big onions, I won five cups in this year’s local show.


Anyone who becomes a ‘Friend of Trelay’, will receive these information-packed and very cheering newsletters.
