Coppicing Weekend - 24-26 November 2017

Sorry, fully booked.

Come and help us with our annual coppicing weekend. Join a group of residents and volunteers coppicing hazel stools using hand tools and restoring neglected coppice, with lots of tea, cake and tasty food in between.

This is an opportunity to experience woodland management using saws, axes and billhooks.

These events are a great chance to come together as community in the winter months and learn woodland skills in a fossil fuel free environment.

There is no charge - these are volunteer weekends. All meals are provided.
