Tree Shepherd nurture organisation selection criteria*:

We reserve the right to refuse an application. In certain cases an individual may not be deemed by Tree Shepherd as ‘business-ready’ for trading at the Country Show and will be supported in the business clinic until they are at a stage when they are ready to go to market. This is part of our commitment to duty of care and responsibility as a nurture organisation.

Please note that this is not ideal as a first-time trade experience and the level of test-trading or trading to date will need to be considered.

Due to limited space available, in cases of over-subscription, Tree Shepherd reserves the right to apply alternative selection criteria. This may include selecting on a lottery-basis.
