All of my courses are being held at my smallholding in the wild, wild west of Wales (otherwise known as near to New Quay in very scenic Ceredigion) and will showcase the many benefits and delights of wildlife-friendly organic grow-your-own.

During each course there will also be ample opportunity for questions and time to meet our resident pet (and indeed very friendly) sheep, ducks, chickens and Shetland ponies. You’ll no doubt get to spot many different varieties of garden bird, frogs and pollinating insects. Not forgetting the red kites and buzzards that soar gracefully overhead.

There will be refreshments, a tasty vegetarian lunch and the opportunity to sample produce around growing season availability. Additionally, all full-day attendees will get a free gift from one of our corporate partners and plants to take home.

It also offers some of the best opportunities for seal and dolphin spotting in the country.
