Learn skills in countryside management and craft
An exciting programme of training courses designed to offer new skills and employment opportunities to those living in rural Worcestershire.....
During 2012 a series of 6 courses will cover all aspects of running a smallholding and there are other days which will offer training in countryside skills such as fencing, hedge laying, and charcoal burning. On the food production side there will be bread making in a wood-fired oven and turning fruit into pickles and chutneys. Those with fruit trees can learn how to prune them and then turn the end product into juice or cider.
Eligible applicants will pay only £25 per course (plus materials costs in some cases) as they have been selected under a programme co-financed by RDPE LEADER.
Peter Miller of Bewdley Development Trust said "Following a pilot programme as part of the Grow with Wyre partnership, we are pleased to be able to offer training in a wide variety of countryside management and crafts. This will provide new skills leading to employment opportunities, and help to bring land back into use which will contribute to a more sustainable future for all of us"
All the courses will run from 9am to 5pm and will be held at Uncllys Farm, Bewdley DY12 2LR. The Ruskin Studio at the farm is an award winning green oak framed building with easy access and a wood-fired range.
