Soil Association Future growers meeting

Jul 30, 2013

Meet our Future Growers field trip in West Wales
The Soil Associations Future Growers will be in West Wales from 16-18 August for one of their field trips. We are using this weekend to invite organic growers to meet current and potential trainees and apprentices at a BBQ at Bwlchwernen Farm from 7.00pm on 17 August 2013.
 
The Future Growers scheme now offers 6 month placements allowing growers to take on trainees as seasonal workers. This BBQ will be a good opportunity to find out more about the scheme and talk to trainees and apprentices about their experiences and their hopes for the future.
 
We do hope you will join us!
 
Please email or call Rachel Harries rharries@soilassociation.org or 0117 987 4601 if you’d like to book a place.
