Introduction to Husbandry Course (1 Day)
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 for you!
This course is an introduction to all topics within Husbandry, providing a basic understanding of the husbandry of our land and resources within it. For a deeper understanding, including consideration and application of your personal requirements and situation, please see our Foundation in Husbandry two-day course.
Husbandry is the practice of productively managing nature’s ecologies within your own boundaries and capabilities, whilst developing your personal relationship with your ‘bit of dirt’, be it a small yard, a garden or a larger piece of land. In so doing, we are addressing some of the most important aspects of our simple relationship as human beings with the earth.
Our Husbandry Skills courses offer a fascinating introduction to the philosophical, theoretical and historical aspects of husbandry whilst also providing real ‘hands-on’ experience – turning principles into practices that should serve you well in all the years to come.
By the end of the course you will not only be inspired by some new ideas and techniques, but also by ways of looking and seeing – plus you get to take home plenty of learning materials, including literally the seeds you sowed.
