Hedgelaying for Beginners
Sat 18 November 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
Hedgelaying is the traditional way to maintain a boundary hedge and was utilised to stockproof areas long before post and wire fences became common. However hedgelaying still remains an important way to rejuvenate a hedge whilst creating and maintaining an important wildlife habitat.
This one day, hands on event will introduce you to the basic hedgelaying techniques and to the different tools required to complete the job. With the setting for the event adjacent to the Trent and Mersey Canal it will also be a great location to be showing off your handiwork! Suitable for anyone over the age of 14.
