If you would like to come visit us, we cannot wait to meet you! Please read more below about how your life at Toca will be & fill out our visitor form.

We understand this is flexible but it really helps us to organise beds & space if you can give us an idea of how long you expect to stay.
Toca has limited parking so this helps us to organise our space.
Sofee and Rabbit still have some things in England and are looking for people traveling over from England in vehicles, we would love to hear if you have space to help us out <3
We have a limited number of beds, especially in the summer. We may ask you to bring a tent for your accommodation.
Are you a professional cook? Are you a permaculture guru? A building/construction hero? A sound technicus? A yoga teacher?
Building tools/materials, garden tools, books, art materials, fabrics, wood or anything else you think a community may need would be greatly appreciated.
