UPDATE!

We are very sorry but we have been forced to cancel this wonderful event… for now! We plan to host Charles for a ‘No Dig’ event as soon as we can, probably early next year. Please keep an eye our for further information when we get it locked down (probably not the best phrase at this time!) If you would like a full refund please let us know at .


Come along to our Organic Community Farm in Hillsborough, Co. Down on Saturday 16th May & Sunday 17th May and spend the day with ‘No Dig’ expert Charles Dowding. We will go through the basics of how to set up your own simple productive no-dig system from start to finish.

Charles says “Gardening is often made to sound more complicated than it is, especially with regard to feeding plants and coping with weeds. I empower you with understandings of the methods you see at Homeacres, which you can then adapt to your own garden. Homeacres is a quarter acre market garden and a field lab too, there is loads to see and learn from.”

Learn more about Charles’ no-dig methods here.

Organic lunch and beverages will be provided throughout the day. Spaces are limited, we do suggest you get your tickets soon!

We have accommodation in the farmhouse for 6 people sharing (contact us for more info). We also have camping spaces available.

You can buy tickets at Eventbrite – click here. <<<<<<<<<<<<
