Cancellation Policy

Reaching further abroad with our classes means that Shovel & Fork will have a greater impact on the local farmers, businesses and hard working folks like yourselves in our communities. The people who support us rely on the commitments we make for livestock, produce and equipment. To avoid disappointing anyone, yourself included, we are implementing a fair cancellation policy to ensure that we can fulfil our obligations to our team members and partnering farmers. All classes carry a non-refundable deposit. The deposit will be used to offset food cost, materials cost, instructor wages etc. We appreciate your understanding, as we feel this is the most fair way of supporting everyone in our supply network, all of whom we consider friends.

A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is applied to all seats. Cancellations made 7 calendar days prior to the class start date will be refunded the difference, and no refund will be offered for a cancellation made after that time.

On all classes priced at $150.00 or more, a non-refundable deposit of $100.o0 is applied. Cancellations made 7 calendar days prior to the class start date will be refunded the difference, and no refund will be offered for a cancellation made after that time.

All class seats are transferable. This means that if you can find someone to assume your seat, you need not loose the deposit. Its up to you to find your replacement, negotiate the terms of assuming the seat, and have them contact us before the class start date.

If Shovel & Fork cancels a class for any reason we will refund your payment in full.

In the event a class has to be postponed due to an extenuating circumstance (i.e. bad weather), a new date will be decided upon and your payment will be transferred to that date.
