How we began…

Inspired by the explosion of creative festivals in Britain, and conceived as a way to stem summer reading loss, especially in vulnerable readers, Elizabeth invited the whole town to Isabella’s wild back garden to experience the joy of storytelling, sack races, homemade lemonade, a writing workshop, a book swap and buckets of sunshine. A bit mad, yes, but a blast. The following summer we met in Chantal’s gorgeous garden by the bay. Then we landed at Isabella’s Farm and discovered magic.

And here we are.
