Courses and workshops

We run a number of courses and workshops for the public and those interested in their own growing or small holding projects.

Keeping Chickens

Throughout the year, we run courses for those intending to keep their own chickens. If you want to put your name on the waiting list for the next one, email Farmer Bill on animals@swcityfarm.co.uk

Tim Foster's Organic gardening course

We run an annual organic and allotment gardening course, starting each February, for those who want to learn how to grow their own fruit and vegetables. Horticulture teacher and author Tim Foster shares his knowledge and skills, from pruning to sowing, pests to composting, rotations to companion planting and much more.

This course is now in its 17th year – the best of its kind in Bristol – with a great a mixture of theory and practical. It runs over 16 Wednesday evenings at the Farm (6.30-8.30pm) plus 9 Saturday mornings on the local allotments (9-11am) from February to June.

The 25 sessions cost just £200 – and if you are a Bristol City Council plot holder you are entitled to a year’s reduction in rental if you take this course!

Every year this course is sold out, so email us now on  office@swcityfarm.co.uk to put your name on the waiting list for 2018.

Boiling Wellness

A relaxing weekly volunteering session where we prepare lunch together from fresh ingredients then do a seasonal activity in a beautiful outdoor setting. Learn cooking, gardening, foraging, crafts and woodwork. Sessions run throughout the year with a cosy woodburner to keep you warm in colder months. These sessions are specially for people experiencing mental ill health or distress. Part of the Enclude Project.
