Sat 14th March 2009 – Coppice Workshop
Help to create some new habitat for the rare Duke of Burgundy butterfly and learn some new skills at the same time! Tuition will cover the basics of how to coppice effectively, the tools for the job, and habitat management. Discover the value of coppice to wildlife as we open up Primula-rich glades.
Lunch will be cooked with a clay oven, as built during our FARM Africa workshop last summer. Hearty, hot food that’s just perfect for a winter task. (It’s gorgeous, proper country cooking! – JB)
At the end of the day we hope to sell off some of our hazel produce – walking sticks, bean rods, firewood, etc.
Location: Little Hidden Farm, Hungerford Newtown, Berkshire.
Fee: £20 (£10 students) which goes to FARM Africa.
