    It costs £12 per person per night. The full programme – 10 days is £120 per person. "There will be a timetabled programme over the course of the 10 days including events, activities and workshops. Earth stamp charcoal burning, scything, discussions and film screenings. These will all be optional – essentially you will be in control of how you structure your time at the Merzbarn. As the site is self-catering, we feel it is important to eat and clean communally.
