Self Sufficiency for Beginners

Our Self-sufficiency for Beginners Workshop is a practical and hands-on day to give you an introduction to self-sufficiency in food, understand how that might work for you in your garden and feel comfortable with your next steps towards self-sufficiency.

Some gardening experience is assumed, this is NOT a beginner’s gardening course.
