So you've got a piece of land and you wish to make it more productive? You want to learn more practical skills?
Find out about the best ways to look after your pasture, crops, veges and trees?
Have a go at cheese making, stone sculpting, sheep shearing, fencing?
Maybe you're thinking about getting bees, alpacas or goats?
You need to get the irrigation sorted on your land? And after the last drought perhaps it'd be good to know more about fire safety in our rural environments?
You've come to the right place - the annual Dovedale School fundraiser will have you sorted!
There are so many great workshops on offer, you might have a hard job choosing which ones are priority! We also need to tell you that the local community do a massive bake and cook-up and lay on a hearty farm-style lunch as well.
It is a day not to be missed! The facilitators are awesome (and they give their time for free which is really really appreciated) and the money you pay goes directly to the ~40 kids at the local school. $120 for the day.
Scroll down for more information about each workshop. Some workshops have limited spaces because they are really hands-on. Register soon to avoid disappointment. Hope to see you on the day - Saturday 10th August - we have put our order in for sunshine.
