Our wood is 60 acres of chestnut coppice with stands of beech, scots pine, douglas, cedar and giant sequoia. It is the base for a collection of small enterprises: a cafe, forest school, woodland products business, Christmas Tree field. And a growing community of members who come to help out and share their skills. The wood is also open to the public for walks, courses, BBQs, camping, parties.

We took over the Wood in 2014 and have been very busy building communal spaces and developing an annual calendar of working parties and celebrations. Plans in the pipe-line include: chestnut cabins for visiting families and apprentices to sleep in, new workshops and studios to allow more people to work here, a swimming pond and much more.

We are looking for people who can help with some or all of the following: green wood-working, carpentry, building, gardening, forestry, maintenance, house-work, cooking, and chicken-keeping.

Our children don't go to school much so we are looking for people who enjoy having kids around.
