Event description

Description

The Open Weekend at Canon Frome Court is the first stage in our membership process. It's a great opportunity to find out more about us by living, working, and eating with us for a weekend. Places are limited so we ask everyone to please book online here in advance. If you are coming in a family group, please book a ticket for everyone, including kids and babies. We look forward to meeting you!

The timetable for the weekend is flexible, but normally something like this:

Saturday

12.30 - arrive and get settled in your accommodation. You'll either be hosted in the house of a community member, or staying in one of our guest rooms.

1pm - communal lunch (soup, bread, salads etc)

2pm - introductory talk by a member of the community (NB in the winter we do this later, so as to make the most of the daylight)

2.30pm to 5pm - working with community members on the farm. Tasks vary depending on the season - things like weeding, lifting potatoes, or shifting compost are common activities. We always stop for a nice long tea break half way through the afternoon, with plenty of home made cake!

5pm - tour of the farm (earlier in winter) and some of the units (i.e. people's houses), followed by free time.

7.30pm - Pot Luck supper - everyone brings a dish to share.

Sunday

8am to 10am - self-service breakfast

10am to 1pm - more work gangs, with tea and cake half way through

1pm - communal lunch

2pm - goodbyes and departures.


Things to bring:

Wellies and gardening gloves, and clothes that you don't mind getting mucky in.

A dish to share for the Pot Luck meal, if you can.

A sleeping bag is also really helpful as it reduces the amount of laundry we have to do afterwards!
