Castlefarm course in setting up allotments


Castlefarm organic farmers Jenny and Peter Young are holding a one-day
course on setting up allotments. The course will equip private landowners and
community groups with all the information and tools to enable them to set up their own

On Saturday 9th of May from 11am-2pm the couple will guide people through
the process of setting up allotments. This will include information about what
prospective allotment holders want, the costs involved in setting up allotment sites,
the legalities of land ownership and a tour of the Castlefarm allotments.

Since they launched the first organic allotments in the country Jenny and Peter have
spent a lot of time researching this topic. The cost per person will be 80 eur  per person and numbers will be limited. Places must be booked in advance.

Enquiries are welcome on 087-6785269 or Castlefarm
