Event description
This Meet-up will held in Perthshire at WWOOF hosts Burmieston Farm. Meet like-minded WWOOF folk and get some hand-on experience on the farm

About this Event

Burmieston Farm is a family-run smallholding in the Perthshire hills, with geese, sheep and chickens, self catering accommodation, a young orchard and lots of grass!

The hosts, Keesje and Oliver, are looking forward to greeting WWOOF folk at this Meet-up, to share their interest in growing food, looking after and improving the land, climate change, and how to make humans and the land more resilient to the changes.

The day will be a chance to meet and chat with other like-minded WWOOF folk, learn more about what WWOOF is all about, and do some hands-on work with the sheep or plant some trees (and learn how to bake bread if the weather’s bad!)
