Fork And Dig It welcomes people of all ages and abilities. We practice and teach sustainable agriculture with a sensitive approach towards land management, biodiversity and the environment. Our approach is informed by both traditional organic farming techniques, permaculture and the no-dig method. Volunteering can involve land preparation, sowing, planting, harvesting, composting etc. All work is supervised. Bring enthusiasm, sensible clothes, some lunch to share and enjoy a healthy active day with us learning how to grow food.
