Event description

Description

A two day course to introduce coppicing hazel. There will be discussions and practical skill sharing sessions in a beautiful, but overstood, hazel coppice in North Yorkshire. We will learn about some of the history and ecological advantages of coppicing. We will learn and practice appropriate use of hand tools used for coppicing, safely cutting an area in the wood using traditional techniques and tools. We will also look at the wider benefits of working in the woods, make some coppice products and discuss the economics of how to run a successful coppicing project. We will learn efficient ways of working in the woods and you will leave with the skills and confidence to go away and have a go yourself.

There are concession price places available for students and the unemployed, please contact me for more details.

There is the option to spend the camp in the woods overnight and eat with the crew, otherwise there are B&Bs and hotels in the immediate area. Camping and a hearty vegetarian supper costs an additional £15 per head.

There are hand washing facilities on site but there are no toilet facilities, so be prepared to use our "woodland latrine".

You will need warm waterproof clothes and shoes and a packed lunch for each day. There is a shelter, fire and a kettle. Tea and coffee is provided but please bring your own mug if you want hot drinks.

Park in the car park at the end of Low Field Lane,

Public transport to the site is limited. The site is about 1 hours walk from Knaresborough train station. I would hope participants would be up for lift sharing if need be. Let me know if you can offer this, or require it.
