Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 18th August 2018
If you have a lifestyle block and need some help managing the land and animals, Farmlands and the Dovedale community are offering a practical, hands-on farm skills day on Saturday 18th August. Everything from welding basics for gates, coping with lambing, butchering your homekill, animal health, bee keeping, how to build a fence, chainsaw use, organic vege growing, orchard pruning and grafting, to pasture management.
NZ's Farm Consultant of the Year 2016 will be there to answer questions, there will be quality spot prizes and you'll come away with knowledge, skills and inspiration.
Support the small rural school of 42 kids in Dovedale - early bird prices $95 by 18th July. $120 after 18th July. Includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Limited places available (to ensure workshops are hands-on) so don't delay.
