Organic growing and tasting weekend

Starts: 13 July 2013 10:30
Ends: 14 July 2013 16:30

Troed y Rhiw Farm, Llwyndafydd, Llandysul, Ceredigion SA44 6BY

Learn about the principles of organic growing and our increasing need for sustainable agricultural practice in a post-peak oil economic landscape. Using the farm as a working classroom, you will be introduced to key organic growing principles including crop diversity, fertility building, crop rotation and maintaining natural habitats. This would be complemented by practical hands on experience in soil preparation, sowing seeds, plant nurturing and organic forms of pest control. The weekend will end with a discussion and advice session on developing your own organic plot.

An organic lunch from farm produce will be provided each day with a chance to taste a range of varietals grown on the farm.

We specialize in courses that are small scale, engaging and hands on. Led by talented and experienced teachers, the courses provide an intimate learning environment, ample opportunity to question and debate and good food throughout the day.

A great opportunity to get away for a weekend and learn some sustainable skills. Accomodation at the farm is available in our beautifully restored stone dairies, so stay a weekend or a week while you do your course and see the beautiful coastline and countryside of West Wales.

Come on our scheduled courses or book on demand if you have a group of six or more. All courses can be made family-friendly.

Cost: £120 for the weekend including lunch
