Wild Hunt Week at Hartcliffe City Farm

Throughout the first week in April we will be holding events at Hartcliffe City Farm, focusing on the ecology to be found on site.

We would love you to come and help us!! Everyone is welcome to come and join in with this great project which is being led by our ecology expert, Ross. Children and young people are very welcome but will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
