We are super excited and delighted to be sponsors for an awesome event going on at Soul Farm in Falmouth, Cornwall.
The Market Gardening Camp out with JM Fortier is the first time JM has come to teach in the UK and we are delighted to be sponsoring the event that the fantastic Soul Farm team are hosting!
This is no normal event either, with onsite camping, awesome food, and a short walk to the beach for swimming this is one that will be remembered.
