Event description

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.

Part One @ Lawrence Weston Community Farm, BS11 ONJ
Community Room, 10am to 1pm, Saturday 23rd March 2019.

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.

This excellent location gives an opportunity to talk indoors and have a look around the Community Farm, which will provide an interesting contrast to part two of the workshop...

Part Two @ My Smallholding in Yatton (precise location to be divulged upon booking, not far from Station), BS49 4QY
10am to 1pm, Saturday 27th April 2019

Part Two of the workshop will cover the same general issues as part one, but you will be able to look at a genuine smallholding and see how it has unfolded over the past 15 years. You will be able to see poultry enclosures (chickens, geese and ducks), a drainage system in action, hay meadow, permitted self built cabin, small 'wooded' area, large vegetable patch, pollard and coppice willow and sheep permitting a nice collection of spring lambs, etc.
