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 email@example.com to let us know.
