Where is organicARTS based?

organicARTS is based at West Town Farm in Ide. The farm is a working organic farm in a rural landscape on the edge of the Teignbridge boundaries and yet only 3 miles from Exeter. It has 160 acres all of which are accessible for visiting groups and individuals. In this sense it is a unique centre having an integrated approach involving the combination of a rural site involving the working farm with education and the arts. The farm has incredible range of locations including an old railway cutting, newly planted orchard, stream, meadows and woodland.
