It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, spend time in the woods and have fun! Those that come along and help get a share of some of the timber (once we have put aside the few loads for sale to raise funds for the years’ insurance.)
Accompanied children and dogs on leads very welcome! Bring hand tools and work gloves if you have them. Loppers, bill-hooks, bow saws. We will have a small supply available.
No experience necessary. Training given. Work to suit all abilities and ages.
Come and share some good company, wholesome and productive work and delicious food!
Please contact us if you would like to come along (so we know how much cake to make!)

A request from Spencer.
I am looking to get skills in plumbing and/or electrics, and particularly interested in those relating to renewable energy systems.
I studied Biology and Agricultural Development at university, working on social and environmental issues from a research perspective. I always had an interest in practical work and worked seasonally on farms.
I decided to change track and, since moving to Cornwall and living in a more land-based community, I have been exposed to site carpentry, joinery, green woodworking, gardening, forestry and other land-based activities and occupations, always in quite a low-skilled capacity.
Having lived in Cornwall for two years and developing a network of people living on the land and who wish to have more autonomy in the their energy supply, I would like to learn how to install renewable energy systems. This would give an opportunity for me to really specialise in a particular field and set of skills, and which I could use in helping people wishing to switch to alternative energy.
Any help or advice on how or where to gain these skills would be greatly appreciated.
If you feel you could offer Spencer some experience or training please get in touch with us and we’ll pass on his details to you…
