Tinkers Bubble is a low impact woodland community in Somerset, with a passion for sustainability and for working the land. It was founded in 1994 on a 40 acre site, of which 27 acres is woodland. Currently there are 11 adults and 3 children resident in the community. The use of fossil fuels is not allowed within their land, other than a few minor exceptions, such as the occasional use of paraffin lamps. The homes are built using timber grown on site, plus recycled materials. They grow much of their own food and strive to be as sustainable as possible. They work the land using horses and produce sawn timber in their steam engine powered sawmill.
