Become a vet or homeopath mentor
Homoeopathy at Wellie Level (HAWL) is a 'tiny not-for-profit making a huge difference.'
Our aim is to provide unbiased and qualified training and support to farmers who wish to learn and use homeopathy on their farm. We survive due to the goodwill and dedication of our volunteers and supporters; the generosity of benefactors, such as HRH the Prince of Wales; and the homeopathic pharmacies Ainsworths, Freemans, Helios and Crossgates Bioenergetics, who kindly sponsor some of our course material.
Why support us?
Farmers who use a homeopathic approach report that they use fewer antibiotics and drugs, which means a cleaner, safer food chain of meat and dairy products. As the only live-taught online and attendance course in farming homeopathy, we play a substantial part in this effort.
Our course fees cover the cost of paying for our vets and homeopaths to deliver the live training, but do not cover the cost of:
Keeping the cost of the course as affordable as possible, to all farmers
Offering bursaries to make the course accessible to all farmers regardless of income
Producing course material, and developing film and online material for the ongoing and future benefit of homeopathy on the farm
Funding our research to help generate more support towards homeopathy
Running the website and other non-profit business overheads
Advertising the course and promoting the benefits of homeopathy on the farm
Running webinars to provide continuation training and support to our farmers
Sending newsletters to keep our members up to date with the latest in prescribing
Updating courses to keep up with the latest developments in homeopathic research.
Future proofing the running of HAWL as founder Chris Lees looks to pass the reigns on to the next generation.
Therefore, any support - regular or one-off, is always ploughed straight back into our core driving purpose - homeopathy in farming. Why?
For the welfare of the animals
The quality and safety of the food chain
The financial saving that is gives back to the farming community
What it all costs
£500 sponsors one farmer to attend the course. Many successful farmers do not make a profit, relying on government schemes to subsidise their running and living costs. This course can make a big difference to vet bills, and therefore affordability and autonomy, as well as the quality and therefore market value of the food that they produce.
£250 pays for half a day's training (excluding venue and overheads), enabling us to afford the very best in veterinary and homeopathic lecturers.
Every penny donated helps towards these costs, as well as the overall annual running costs of our 'tiny non-profit that is making a huge difference!'
How it helps our farmers:
HAWL exists to support farmers who care passionately about animal welfare and the environment, and who want to learn an holistic and sustainable approach to animal health. Many of these are tenant or small family farmers who struggle to keep afloat, and the course would significantly help them to reduce vet bills, and increase the quality of their produce.
Help fund our research:
Antibiotic resistance is already having a critical impact on human health. Currently, in the UK 45% of all antibiotics are used for farm animals. This contributes hugely towards resistance in people as residues go into the food we eat, the water we drink and back onto the land on which our food is grown and raised. Farmers who use a homeopathic approach tell us that they see their animals’ health increase, and their antibiotic usage decrease. We gather and analyse data from a number of farms to examine their records pre and post their HAWL course, with a view to providing evidence that a homeopathic approach can create a healthier farm and environment for all.
