An important part of our work is to hunt out inspiring stories about how to make natural landscapes work better.

And, throughout the year, we run a busy programme and courses and events, which are open to all.

These range from skill-based courses like woodworking and gate-making, to more ecological themes like bird watching and flower identification.

Come on a Course

Throughout the year, we run a busy programme of courses and events at our base at St George’s Farm in the Wyre Forest. The programme is inspired by John Ruskin’s belief  in the importance of rural craft and livelihoods. We hope you will be able to join us in the woods soon – please see below for a list of courses and events we have coming up. If you have any questions, please contact Daisy at
