We have an extensive programme of events planned for 2013 as part of the heritage project. A number of other events run by the Hindu Samaj also relate to this project.
The core activities for this project are as below. This constitutes the first set of events and are planned for the following dates, email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve places.

Outside of the core events we expect to soon be offering trips to the Beardwood Natural Living project where participants can experience growing their own fruit and veg, learn about tree planting and woodland management, habitat creation and wildlife identification. They can learn rural crafts such as making bird boxes, bat boxes and insect hides, dry stone walling, wool craft made from the farms Hebridean and Gritstone sheep, spinning and natural dyeing of wool using plants grown on the farm. The farmhouse kitchen will be available for cooking, using mainly produce grown on the farm, from the garden, orchard and hedgerows. A herb walk will take place led by a qualified herbalist who will identify and explain the use of herbs used in herbal medicine and cooking. An introduction into basic bushcraft & survival skills will include shelter building, collection of clean water, fire lighting and outdoor cooking. See http://www.facebook.com/pages/Beardwood-Natural-Living-Project/321675577849428 . The dates for these activities will soon be released.
