Our current list of courses

What do you want to learn next?

In the current lockdown we are unable to run many of our “normal” courses, and we are all hoping that by Spring 2021 we can resume at least of some of our courses. In a normal year we run a huge range of courses, from sourdough baking to no-dig gardening, from raising chickens to making solar panels. All of our courses and workshops focus on countryside skills and crafts needed to run your own smallholding. Our courses are run by all sorts of people, from experts within our own group, to external tutors from local businesses. We try to keep the group sizes small, and the venues local.

We have started to tentatively arrange courses for Spring 2021, some of these you can book now, some of these we are asking you to register your interest before we confirm and book a tutor or place a deposit on a venue.  (Sometimes we need to ensure we can hit the tutors minimum attendance level to make the course financially viable)
