Our current training diary

What do you want to learn about next?

With the Governments covid roadmap now underway, we are hopeful that we can resume our outdoor courses with capacity of 6 from March 29th. We are hoping to slowly introduce more courses in line with the Government guidelines, with a view to being back to a normal year by the summer. 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 from 29th March, running through to December 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)
