The purpose of the course is to explore the ancient craft of hedgelaying, traditionally used to provide a boundary and shelter for livestock. As well as the practical benefits for livestock, hedgelaying creates vital corridors and habitat for wildlife, and helps rejuvenate a hedge from the base allowing it to re-grow and start it’s life cycle again. The course will be taught by local expert Wade Muggleton and will involve laying a planted hedge at Tickenhill meadow, along with plenty of talk and demonstration on the history, ecology and tools of the trade.
Please come dressed for the occasion i.e. outdoor workwear, boots, raincoat.
Tools, tea and coffee will be provided (all the essentials). You will need to bring your own lunch.
