WHY are we doing this?
At the end of 2018 We did a full month of groundhandling and it was a great experience.
Gemma’s skills improved a lot and many people suggested we should start a “course**”.
We worked on that idea and decided on a retreat instead, and here it is!
Our objective is to have fun, meet new people and provide a safe environment for others to learn too.
places are limited but if you’d like to join the retreat please fill in the form and we’ll get in touch with you.
