Introduction to Smallholding

Sunday 26th June 10am - 1pm £30

Thinking or dreaming about buying land, growing your own food and living a simpler life?
This workshop is aimed at people thinking about buying land, looking at the options, etc and is particularly aimed at those on a low budget. The workshop will look at planning your smallholding and deciding what you are aiming to get out of it. What you can do in the amount of time that you have available? Are you aiming to make a living or just enough to cover your costs?
This course is facilitated by Juley who has run a smallholding for many years. She has experience of keeping poultry, sheep, pigs and goats and has an extremely large vegetable patch. The workshop will focus on the areas that interest the participants most.
