Hi Lissa. We managed to get 20 people for the workshop in 1 day after announcing it and the 8th of December one is now full. We have set a date for another one and its the 5th January and we already have 12 people for that one. Obviously people are interested in making sourdough. We thought the price was fair, obviously lots of other people do as well.

I will get back to you on the urban farming training centre, thanks for your interest in that
