We asked our 2018 'artist campers' what The Rodd represented. They said:

“mind space... a place for wandering and thinking... free ranging... a centre for ecologically sound creative practice and collective learning... a place to step away from your normal life… a space where art becomes a place to belong, it forms community… a bee’s paradise where both artists and ecology can flourish and work in harmony… a creative retreat, a place for artists to expand their practices… way ahead of its time … many other things that cannot be explained with just words…"
