Smallwoods Association and SWOG Meeting

Along with Courage Copse Creatives, we are hosting a joint meeting of
Smallwoods Association and Small Woodland Owners Group
The meeting will take place on Saturday 15th of July
The topic is: Making a Living From Sustainable Woodland Activities

The meeting will be in 2 sessions:

The morning will be spent at Courage Copse Creatives, near Umberleigh.  This is a relatively new woodland enterprise set in a PAWS site which is being restored to a native woodland.  As well as the production of charcoal and bio-char, Courage Copse Creatives offer horse logging courses and host many interesting educational and artistic events.

Then we will go to Bulworthy Project for a delicious lunch of local produce.

Bulworthy Project was originally a charcoal production business which has now expanded out in many directions.  As well as hosting and running courses, there is a pop-up cafe and a cabin for tourist accommodation set in a woodland described by Devon Wildlife Trust as a “mosaic of habitats”.

After lunch there will be a discussion about all aspects of running a woodland enterprise including, marketing, packaging, planning permission and sustainability not just for your land, but for yourself.

The meeting is open to members of the either group and costs £12 to cover the cost of food and refreshments.  Please use the appropriate paypal button to book.  If you have dietary requirements not covered by the drop down menu, please email to let us know.
