Do you want to set up a small market garden from scratch, and earn a living from it?

Study Visit

Will guided us through his invaluable insights to setting up a thriving half acre market garden on what was deemed to be difficult land to grow on, be a key supplier to the nearby Pennine Cropshare veg bag scheme, and earn a decent income for his efforts. While it was a cold and very wet morning, this raised awareness of the realities of producing food.

What to Expect

• Will spoke about how to set up a market garden from scratch, not far from Oldham, in West Yorkshire

• How to grow 25-30 crops

• How to be a veg grower as a full time job

• How to grow on a half acre farm without machinery

What You'll Leave With

"I came away feeling very enthused. It was great to see that setting up a small market garden is doable both financially and on a small plot of land."
"The visit was great. Will is so practical and I got lots of tips to use."
