We run a varied programme of courses and events throughout the year, see below for the range. Dates will be confirmed in January 2017, in the meantime if you are interested in any of the courses, please register your interest and we will contact you when dates have been finalised.

Join our mailing list and we will keep you up to date with any new courses and dates that are arranged.

If you would like to use the facilities at Old Sleningford Farm to run a course then please contact us to discuss further.

We have a workday on the first Sunday of every month, see the Workdays page for details of dates and times and an idea of the jobs we might be tackling.
