We create more social opportunities for local people to come to the woods, to meet, work, play and learn skills while improving well being. By facilitating these event and activities they too will build a reverence with the woodlands, returning to it. They may even give back with time and energy ensuring the woodlands will be sustained for the future. Below are some of the programmes we are currently running
Here's what some children said they like about coming along.
We have a weekly young people's conservation group called Young Urban Roots where young people will learn how to use tools safely to cut down trees and coppicing wood, in line with Coppetts Wood Conservationist's woodland management plan. From this green wood and the woodland clay they may create beautiful and useful products. The young people will benefit from physical and emotional wellbeing while being outside while also learning practical skills and challenging themselves in their physical efforts to create products.
