Organic Farm School
Visit an organic farm, and learn practical skills
Learn how to grow your own food, rear animals and cook. The courses cater to all skill levels and provide the opportunity to learn from organic farmers with personal experience - from a one-day basic introduction to more professional expertise - in bee-keeping, chicken keeping, vegetable growing, willow weaving, hedge laying and many others.
Whether you want to skill-up and make that step towards making your life more sustainable, learn how to live closer to the land, or get inspired and try something out as a possible career option, this is a great opportunity to try something new as well as have a fun day out on an organic farm.
