Please note due to insurance constraints we can only accept individuals who have completed and passed their CS30 or CS31 to be able use a chainsaw while on site. Also for any other machine operations the operator will need to show a current and relevant training certificate.
We are often on the lookout for certain items to help progress work here at the woods.
We are currently looking for;
Heritage species of apple, pear and mazzard trees to plant in the new orchard area.
Traditional Devon shovels x 2
Large butler sinks x 2
Large Dumpy bags with no holes or rips in them
Quick release cable ties (seem to go through loads of these! Excellent for setting up temporary shelters and fencing for the hens)
Restoring a woodland is a long term project that requires patience, perseverance and yes that dirty word – money!
At the moment when we run training courses or have school visits we hire in a porta-loo because our own compost toilet just isn’t fit for purpose for the additional numbers. We would like to install, adjacent to the Forestry barn, a self contained waterless compost toilet that is wheelchair friendly.
Any money donated here will be ring fenced for this project.
