Our 2022 FarmStart Programme is now open for applications.
Are you interested in growing food on a commercial scale, or setting up a small-scale horticultural business?
FarmStart is a year-long programme where you spend two days a week working with an experienced grower on-site at Old Holly Farm or White Lund. In addition, a dedicated training and mentoring programme covers both the horticultural skills and business skills needed to set up and run a small-scale market garden.
Our aim is to increase the capacity for growing food around the district, providing good quality food for local people.
