Welcome to the Nectarworks for Smallholders webpage!
Three consultation workshops were held with North Pennines smallholders in November 2013 in Garrigill, Eggleston and Allendale. Fifty-three people attended, generating a lively discussion and much valuable information.
Following the workshops, local smallholder Richard Thompson set up a new website for North Pennines smallholders. The website includes a forum where smallholders can post ideas or questions: North Pennines Smallholders.
North Pennines Smallholder Group (NPS)
During the course of the Nectarworks project, events and workshops were held such as training on grassland management, rush management, wildlife diversity, lambing and many more. This lead to the establishment of a committee of dedicated smallholders who took the group forward to become fully constituted. Now the Nectarworks project has come to an end, the NPS group has continued to organise events and workshops. To join NPS, please email the secretary at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The group now has an facebook page, click here to join the group.
