Introduction to Hedgelaying
Saturday 5 November, 10am – 3pm
Hedgelaying is a centuries old traditional craft. Hedges are a natural feature of our countryside, providing an effective boundary as well as important wildlife habitat. Laying a hedge helps rejuvenate an ageing hedge by encouraging it to put on new growth and helps to improve its structure and strength.
Join us at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park for a one-day introduction to hedgelaying. This hands-on course will combine the theory of hedgelaying with practical experience out in the Park. All participants will have a chance to practice hedgelaying, and all materials and equipment will be provided.
This course will be led by Clive Leeke, a traditional hedge-layer and a member of the National Hedgelaying Society. http://www.traditionalhedgelaying.co.uk/
