During the day long event you will get to learn firsthand about the Spoke and Spade enterprise along with all its history, tips, challenges and vision as Sim takes us on a tour of the small farm and unpacks his journey so far. .
You will enjoy a delicious organic home cooked meal with produce from Spoke and Spade and Days Walk Farm and, in the afternoon, there will be a chance to dig deep into any questions, ideas and inspiration you might have through exciting conversations about anything from small farm startups, to accessing land, to CSA models, or building community connections and networks….
Farmer Incubator volunteers will help organise facilitated group discussion topics will be nominated and selected by you! the participants on the day. So come with your ideas, questions and inspiring stories, skills and connections to share and grow.
