We are a small nursery supplying local and national markets, farmers markets and high streets with fresh vegetables (mainly sweet peppers). We are currently diversifying into a more holistic way of growing and self-sufficiency.
DIY and building projects
You will learn how to build, establish, maintain and improve a pepper crop in a growing environment. You will learn how to manage live animals such as bees as well as build and maintain their living environment. You will learn how to harvest food and vegetables in a hydroponic system.
On the nursery itself we have our own little community that enjoys weekly activities such as BBQs and a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy as well.
