Each event can be custom-designed to your group's specific needs and interests, to a variety of budgets, and can be entirely produced for you, or can be generated and organized as a co-production.

Food Preserving Workshops generally focus on seasonal produce.

Build Your Own ColdFrames Workshops, using custom-cut lumber and power tools, for groups of 6 to 12 (adults only), are described here: BuildingWorkshop

Other, simpler styles for ColdFrames that can be produced by gardeners of any age, using recycled materials are also possible.

Again, any event can be custom-designed to your group's specific needs and interests, to a variety of budgets, and can be entirely produced for you, or can be generated and organized as a co-production.
