Workshop Cancellations

We understand that sometimes circumstances change and participants may not be able to attend a course or workshop that has been paid for.

For workshops (half day, full day and weekend), we require a minimum of 7 days notice for cancellations. We do not provide refunds for any cancellations that are made within 7 days of a workshop.

If participants cancel participation in a workshop and are entitled to a refund, they can choose to:

– Receive a refund

– Opt for a credit for another workshop, to be used within 12 months of the initial workshop.

Northey Street City Farm may cancel or change a class at any time, for reasons including but not limited to, lack of participation, inclement weather or facilitator availability.

Registrants can opt for a full refund, or can use the credit for a future workshop, to be used within 12 months of the date of the initial workshop or course.

Become a Workshop Facilitator

We are often looking for new facilitators to run workshops – if you have skills and knowledge to share and experience in running workshops, please get in touch with our Adult Education Co-ordinator at

If you are new to running workshops or have a new workshop idea, you might like to start out by offering a short 1-hour workshop at our Wednesday lunchtime talk series for volunteers and staff.
