Workshops at Roebuck Farm have developed international reputation as being at the forefront of sustainable + profitable market garden practice + education.
The advantage of learning new principles on-farm is that you can experience activities formed within the actual market garden production cycle.
Theory + practical components cover the necessities for developing a site, specific aspect, planning, design, implementation including bed preparation options, innovative handheld tools, crop choices, propagation, harvesting + beyond to restaurant, retail, or market.
All workshops are fully catered + resourced.
They are kept at small, limited place groups.
We advise booking early.
We fully cater all workshops taught on our own farm with locally grown. We do our best to meet dietary requirements + will ask you specifically about this on enrolment.
All workshops at Roebuck Farm run from 9 am to 5 pm, but we understand if you need to leave early for transport home.
You will receive course notes + our resources, with the opportunity to connect with us + other participants via our FB group for long-term support.
We are only 10 min south of town, however there is no public transport directly to the farm. Most people coming from the airport hire a car there.
We like to run these events with small numbers, so it is important you read our cancellation policy prior to booking.
