Hazel Hill Autumn Conversation - Woodland conversation and human restoration.
This weekend combines the satisfaction of outdoor physical activity with the restorative effect of relaxing in a serene woodland environment. Over two days and two nights at Hazel Hill, you will get the chance to try your hand at a range of conservation activities that are helping to turn this piece of important woodland into a resilient environment for the future.
Led by our experienced conservation team, you'll get involved with activities such as tree-planting,, restoring butterfly habitat and thinning thickets.. There'll be optional sessions on forest ecosystems and eco-buildings. And when it's time to down tools, there are plenty of ways to relax: wander through the wood; soak in the outdoor hot tub; relax in the wood-fired sauna; do some stretching in the woods; sing songs around the campfire and share delicious food.
The event takes place at Hazel Hill Wood, a secluded 70 acre conservation woodland and retreat centre that offers basic indoor accommodation in off-grid eco-buildings (either in small dormitory sleeping lofts or private rooms*) with warm showers - you can also camp, or join on a non-residential basis. Timing from 7pm on Friday 30th September until 3pm on Sunday 2nd October. Prices include all meals. Concessionary prices are available. No pets.Children age 5 and up welcome with an adult family member. Sorry, no pets.
*If you wish to stay in a private room, then book the number of adult or concessionary places you need in the first two fields, and then also buy the one-off supplement for the size of room you would like.
