Very Very helpful. Given a coffee and made to feel very welcome on entering. Quirky place to visit, cross between an antique store and museum. Really would have liked longer time to look at everything.

The people volunteering here are great, friendly and lots of help. We have collected some of their seeds in the past. Each visit has been a welcome treat - hot pull up a seat under the shade and have a visit

Friendly staff that know a lot about the area. The property itself is a heritage building with an interesting history. Go downstairs to check out the vintage books and (very reasonably priced) on going yardsale. Many community gatherings here, place outside for eating lunch.
