FREE WORKSHOPS: KICK START YOUR COMMUNITY

Organisation: 

Healthy Communities is drawing to a close and we have seen so
many changes take place within communities as a direct result of
this project that we wanted to invite interested residents to take
part in a series of workshops aimed at growing ideas, building
skills and building communities. If you feel like you have an idea
you would like to put into action, some skills you would like to
build upon or share, a love of your community and a desire to
support its development, then this could be for you.

Keeping Backyard Chickens

Organisation: 

Jade will cover everything you need to know to keep your own chickens healthy and productive. Starting with the first choice – which breeds, what age, how many? Chicken housing, nutrition, behavioural needs, the broody hen and more. Finally the uses of chickens in your garden or on your farm – the digging and scratching they do for you, the manure they provide and the joy they give. Bookings are essential as there are a limited number of places.

Fencing for all occasions

Organisation: 

Fencing is the most important land management tool for the grazier and many ‘new’ farmers own grazing animals, be they horses, cattle or alpacas. Many people give up on electric fencing because they find that it costs much time to maintain and can be unreliable. That myth will be ‘busted’ on the day as electric fencing can be cost effective and reliable.
