Woodland Working Week

A week’s programme of woodland work, collecting materials to be used on the Neolithic build later in the year. We should be restoring an over stood hazel coppice and tree planting, thinning oaks and splitting with wedges. We will have a day of collecting heather on the Long Mynd if it’s not too windy. There is willow cutting too. Lunch for everyone will be cooked on the fire. It’s a great way to get physically tired doing something productive, socialising and benefiting the native wildlife at the same time.

For those who want to stay there is free ‘ camping’ space in the chapel – bring your own mat and sleeping bag. If you want to be more comfortable there may be a limited number of rooms to rent at Old Chapel Farm or shared yurts. There are BnB options in Llanidloes and Rhayader too.

In the evenings we will cook and eat together in the farmhouse and there will be the chance to learn about the Neolithic project. We hope some of you will come with musical instruments and stories too! If the weather is good enough we will end with an equinox meal up in the settlement.

So come and celebrate the last bit of winter with us before the mad growth of spring begins!
