Open Woodland Day

On Sunday the 13st of March 2016 we will be celebraitng tree week with an open day in our woodland. This 10 acre forest was planted 11 years ago and is now well establisched and ready for a light thinning. Sandra Schmid and her work horse Henry will demonstrate how a horse can work in tight spaces making much less mess than a machine.

We will also have a basket-making demonstration from Martin O Flynn,

Tim Rowe will give a talk on T
he Woodland Burial Site for West Cork

There will be walk through the forest with a chance to plant a tree on our native tree walk.

We will have a seed swap table so if you have some seeds to swap, please bring them along.

If you want to demonstrate a woodland skill or sell something you made out of wood, please let us know and we will try to include you.

And there will be lots of tea, in the barn. Please bring your own cake.
