The Kindling Trust are serious about getting more people into growing organic food commercially, and we are looking to support people who are serious about doing it too!
They are offering a package that is completely unique in the UK – with a route into farming via a four day course that covers all the key areas for setting up and running an organic food growing enterprise, from finances and record-keeping to soil fertility and field-scale veg production. Read more about the course and how to apply here. Participants in the course can then choose to apply for a place on the FarmStart site, where they’ll receive land, support and training to get their growing business established.
They’re starting it all off with a ‘Do you want to be a Farmer?’ evening on Monday 15th September, from 6.30-8.00 pm at the Kindling offices in Hulme. Read more about the evening here.
