Here’s what they say about themselves:

“137AC is a group of outsider, self taught artists consisting of painters, sculptors, writers, photographers and film makers. Our goal is to develop our talent to a professional level outside of sheltered workshops. We want to shape a rotating collaborative space where our ideas can materialize and reach the public. We are starting out small in a building already engaged in creative activities, including theater, hackers, beekeepers, up-cyclers, scientific research and roof gardening. There is opportunity to expand our space and welcome new members to our original group of 10 artists. As a collective we will support and challenge each other to explore our creativity to its limits.”

glos farming

“This isn’t old school farming when we’re working our land
We sell our own produce with till in hand”

Young “sheep doggy dogg” farmer on his countryside rap
WOULD the real Ben Morton please stand up?
Young farmer Ben, who works for Hillworth Farm Meats, has switched pitchfork for microphone to rap about the delights of the Gloucestershire countryside.

The young butcher, 20, a self-styled Sheep Doggy Dogg raps about the best produce on offer from Gloucestershire farms. Inspired by the Yeo Valley TV advert, and written by head of events for Gloucestershire Media Emma Samways, the young farmers are winning rave reviews. But they say there is a serious side to their musical efforts.

“I’m more famous for singing country songs, so this was a bit different. We had to tweak the lyrics so they made sense, but they turned out ok. A lot of farmers are struggling at the moment so we wanted to help promote our produce.”

the husbandry school

Check it out HERE!
What is husbandry?
We are not talking about animal husbandry (the care and management of animals). Or crops. Or even husbands. We are talking about something VERY much more. Husbandry is an ancient word which means nothing less than ‘the care and management of nature and resources for living’. This meaning has all but gone into obscurity.
We are going to help renew that meaning.
Husbandry is an ancient art which we believe will play a vital role in the transition we all must make towards a sustainable future.
