The Food Forest

Upcoming Courses

Courses are conducted at our Learning Centre located in an old stone barn, now outfitted with modern teaching equipment.
The Centre is serviced by a state-of-the-art composting toilet and reedbed system and other environmentally responsible structures include passive-solar straw-bale accommodation, indoor-outdoor teaching space and coolroom, and a cob oven.

The short courses take advantage of being in the middle of a working property, featuring practicals and field walks.
