I’m glad I found you. I said this to my wife - without Mirthy, my life would be far less richer than it is now.

Event Description

Do you want to live in a greener, more sustainable way? Are you worried about climate change? Do you want to eat more fruit and vegetables? Farlands smallholding in the Peak District includes a large vegetable garden, an orchard, chickens, and bees (and turkeys at Christmas!). My passion is apples and I currently grow over 65 cultivars. In this talk, I will discuss what sustainability is, and ways to eat and live more sustainably.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
