This taster day offers the opportunity to meet not one, but three hosts in the York area and visit two different sites. Try your hand at some seed sowing and planting and get some hot tips for organising your WWOOF trips.
· The Nursery: 1 acre growing fruit and veg for own use and local sale on the edge of York with further land elsewhere. Large greenhouse and polytunnels, hens, ornamental garden. WWOOF hosts for 25 years
· Devonshire Mill: 2 acres surrounding old watermill on stream just outside Pocklington. Old orchard, fruit and veg area, ornamental/natural garden, hens
· The Croppers: good sized garden in the village of Huby. House and land maintained according to permaculture principles. House includes a straw bale extension
Activities will run from 10.30am until 4pm on Saturday 30th March 2019.
