in 2019 at a glance
The core tutors for the Husbandry Skills courses are Jonty and Carole, of course, along with longstanding team member, Sula. MORE
At the Husbandry School all materials are included in the course fee, plus you'll leave with lots of things to take home with you.

Course numbers are restricted so that there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and receive one-to-one attention. And lunch and refreshments will be provided from produce grown at the Husbandry School, naturally.
Husbandry Skills
If you are interested in growing more of the food you eat each week, and wish to do so in a natural, ethical, time-honoured and sustainable way, mindful of the rhythms of nature, then our Husbandry Skills courses are probably for you!

So we have been listening to all of you who have attended our husbandry skills courses and it seems that people who have attended any of the Husbandry skills courses get hooked by the bug. So for 2018 we have restructured the Husbandry skills courses so that both the introduction and foundation courses will include, ‘Eat your own Flower beds’, ‘Garden Remedies’, ‘Husbandry Matters for the garden’ and ‘Allotment Allies’.
