poetry workshop 28 march 2017 at Bosavern Community Farm

Please contact Sonja (01736 785 773) for more info or to book.

This newly forming group will meet once a month at the farm on the last Tuesday of each month. The theme for our first session is just a suggestion, and it is hoped that members of the group will develop and contribute ideas for future meetings.

Diana Dixon, who is part of Stanza in Newlyn and involved in Penzance Literary Festival, will take the lead for this first session.
Please bring your poems to be read and share with others, as well as paper & pen/pencil to try out some exercises to stimulate your creativity.

Experienced writers as well as novices are welcome, it is your group and will reflect the needs and desires of all who attend.
Bosavern Community Farm, near St Just, is on the road towards Kelynack & Lands End and can be reached by walking over fields from St Just or catching the Community Bus, leaving St Just bus stop, just after 11am, which will drop you outside Bosavern Community Farm entrance. The timing of the workshop will enable you to catch a return bus to St Just, leaving the Farm around 1.50pm, if needed.

The Cobhouse is situated in the Home Field, a beautiful space, full of character and will inspire us to explore our interest and joy of words. There is a woodburner, which could be lit, however we would need to supply our own fuel. While there will be an electric heater, it is advisable to wear layers of clothing, as well as suitable footwear for the particularly wet month of March.

The suggested contribution is to pay for the space and refreshments.

Please call Sonja Fairfield on 01736 785 773 or text on 07886 272 652 to let her know if you are planning to attend.

  • Planting broad beans
    This year we decided not to overwinter any broad beans due to the problems of rodents and wind which have damaged us over the past few years. So we began by sowing beans in module trays in the polytunnel in January (we have just sown our fourth succession), and those beans were planted out on […]
  • Our first permanent raised bed outside
    In January we split the market garden into two equal halves, each of about one acre, with one half to be worked by tractor and one by hand (this latter to include the polytunnels, fruit cage, perennial beds, and permanent raised beds). The tractor-worked half will be ploughed soon, and the available parts of the […]
