Future Roots

Future Roots –  Skills inspired from the woods. From the past, in the present and for our future.

This group was established as a woodland restoration project in 2001 to help the Great Wood recover from the big storm of 1987.  Today we focus on managing and nurturing the woodlands ecological health and offer workshops related to woodland management, ecology, carpentry used building structures, crafts, and skills. We also have regular volunteer days in between our workshops should you wish to join in sharing, exploring and understanding the ‘flo’ of Nature and its cycles within a beautiful woodland environment.
