Our first major public event was a really positive success! Despite the relentless rain, around 100 people came down to Antenna Studios to enjoy a day of fun and to learn new skills.
So many people commented on the warm community feeling that was created as they stopped to chat and make new friends.

We received lots of positive comments, such as: "Just wanted to thank you for the open day. I really came to see the beekeepers but found the wormery folk wonderful. I shall shortly receive my wormery thanks to them."
"Thanks for a great day yesterday, despite the weather! The bread making demonstrations have already inspired me to try making my own soda bread”
