About this Event

Two Part Introduction to Smallholding Workshop

**Please note different Locations**

**Total Cost £45 includes both sessions**

Part One @ Lawrence Weston Community Farm

Community Room, 10am to 1pm, Saturday 21st March 2020.

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 (if participants are interested). 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 (not far from Station)

10am to 1pm, Saturday 18th April 2020

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 16 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.
