caravan- a company of people
caravanserai – a place where caravans meet.
The project began with starting a garden in Middle Close (the project field) and establishing a residency space (the project van). This provides a live/work space for people interested in developing social & environmental activities in response to being at Treloan.
Since 2008 caravanserai has hosted artists, writers, musicians, storytellers, foragers, geographers, academics and students through various residencies, work placements, field visits and project events.
