Come and join us on the hill for a day of celebration this summer.
The day will be a chance to see what we get up to here at The Husbandry School and get involved with some fun activities for all the family. More details to come soon…
This book tells a story of husbandry - a proper, time-honoured way in which humanity may participate as members and marriage partners with the 'earth communities'. Husbandry requires an exclusive relationship of a person with the land, and secure tenure.

The husbander has a duty of care within the boundaries of their earth community - all land needs a husbandry clause modelled on those traditionally included in agricultural leases.

We are proud to be affiliated members of The Wholesome Food Association and are more than happy to be guided by their principles in our work here.

The Wholesome Food Association is a network of growers, processors, suppliers and distributors of authentic, locally-grown, wholesome food, and also a campaigning organisation, promoting smaller-scale, sustainable food production. They provide a low-cost labelling scheme for marketing wholesome, locally grown food, as an alternative to the expense and complications of regular 'organic' certification (see the WFA website for full details). Look out for the WFA symbol as the scheme grows!
