Not sure what traction this will get, its just an idea.
I watch Curtis Stone, Jean-Martin Fortier etc avidly and learn new skills and reinforce old ones. Curtis runs workshops across the US, Canada, New Zealand and one in Sweden next July. these are often 4 day events on a suitable farm with lively discussion and practicals, he often also tags on a 1 day classroom work shop.
I would love to meet him, attend and form new contacts. Being in the Isle of Man it adds another hurdle - time and ££ to attending OGA and other events in the UK, and whilst I have considered his US events they would often mean missing too much time in an already hectic season.
I was wondering though whether 'we /OGA' could facilitate an event in the UK ?
It might also be useful PR and bring in varios media that could help spread the word as well as being beneficial to old and new farmers ?
Just an idea. If it did get support I feel it would unlikely fit into his plans until 2019.
