We're pleased to announce that in the New Year we’ll be holding an exciting new course here at The Community Farm in Chew Magna. Grow and Make at The Farm: Gardening for wellbeing, is free to residents in Bath and North East Somerset and is being run as a joint venture with The Wellbeing College, Bath.The course is suited to anyone wanting to feel the positive benefits of working, socialising and learning new skills in the outdoors, in a friendly and supportive environment.
The first of these courses, entitled Winter in the Garden, will run every Wednesday for 8 weeks from 9 January. Two sessions are to be held each day and, during these, participants will learn how to make infrastructure, including raised beds; learn how to look after soil, plants and trees; plan what vegetable crops to grow and where and look at how they can encourage wildlife to thrive. Morning sessions will run from 10am-1pm and afternoon sessions will run from 1pm-3pm, with a shared soup lunch between 12pm-1pm in our cosy roundhouse.
The course is underpinned by the 5 Ways to Wellbeing: Give, Take Notice, Connect, Be Active and Keep Learning and will be delivered through a mixture of engaging theory and practical sessions, taught by a professional.
