Calendar 2016

Calendar of events for 2016

All workshops are now closed for 2016. This is our calendar 2016 of events, for  grow your own fruit & vegetables, other gardening courses and rural skills and crafts. The workshops run by consecutive month .

All workshops run by Françoise Murat unless otherwise named.

A few of the workshops are already booked by people who were on the waiting list, so don’t leave it too late!

By signing-up to the newsletter you benefit from special offers on the workshops not available to everyone. I also run private workshops for groups of friends, I need a minimum of 5 people, just call me to discuss. I am also able to host private events through the spring and summer, just give me a call to see what we can offer.

If  a workshop is sold out – I am always happy to organise another date for you  – I aim to have a minimum of 5 people to make it viable – so just send me an email at enquiries(at) and I can organise private events during the week.
