Courses & Training

We use the site for a range of courses and workshops, including Organic Farm School classes that we hold in partnership with the Soil Association.


We also provide training events for other organisations, including over the last few years: CPD events for school teachers in partnership with Garden Organic and the Food for Life Partnership, Northern College, Spring Vale Community Garden in Penistone, Grow Sheffield and the Abundance Project, the Big Dig. We can host the training on site or at another location. We also host pre-booked visits for schools, community groups, gardening societies.
