Description:

This is a Two Part Workshop. The Ticket Price includes both sessions as described below. It is the ticket holder's responsibility to make their own way to each session. Full directions will be provided.
This workshop is led by Juley Howard who has run a successful small holding of her own for 15 years. Part one of the workshop will look at general issues around running a smallholding, including land management, planning, complying with legislation, and specific issues such as animal husbandry, growing vegetables and fruit, growing food for livestock as well as other products such as willow and hay. We will briefly look at finance and marketing surplus produce and discuss issues such as how to finance a smallholding from scratch depending on the interest of the group. Finally how to skill up so that you can get things done yourself and where to go for support. Part Two @ Juley's Smallholding in Yatton 10am to 1pm, Saturday 27th April 2019 Part Two of the workshop will look at a working small holding. £40
