midlands regional host meeting planned

Oct 12, 2015

Good News, especially for those in the south of our region. Adrian Parsons of Rush Farm near Redditch has generously agreed to host a meeting for WWOOF hosts on Sunday 22 November. 

Rush Farm is a family run organic and biodynamic enterprise and part of the Higher Level Stewardship scheme. For these reasons alone it should make for an interesting visit. Check it out at http://stockwoodcbs.org/rush-farm

As well as a chance to see Rush Farm, the day will provide an opportunity for WWOOF hosts to exchange ideas and information, share problems and catch up with WWOOF-related issues in an informal and social setting. 

Meeting for mid-morning coffee followed by a farm tour, we will have a ‘bring and share’ lunch and a discussion forum. If you have any particular issues you would like discussed let us know and we will try to bring in an expert. 

We know it is difficult to tear yourself away, and we all have many demands on our time, but events like this are useful – so please try and come along. 

If you would like to attend please let David and Rosemary know using davidandrosemary@uwclub.net or 01538 306 656 and they will send directions.
