Woodland Working Holiday

bynight cave1 Sanglier-NatImage-20 IMG_4124

Learn a bit about permaculture and sustainable woodland management and archery whist volunteering 6 hours a day for 5 days then have late afternoons for exploring.  Tent pitch plus light lunches included and possible shared travel option with other attendees.  The idea is that participants can share travel if they wish eg. three to a car and ferry so that the trip will cost just about £100 per person travel.  Obviously you can make your own way there too.  In addition to your tent space and light lunches there will be provided a central cabin with shower/loo, kitchen.  We will go river canoeing along the Dordogne one of the evenings and the others are left to explore where you want.

Woodland work will involve cutting back some pine and brambles and dogwood to allow young oak and hazel to grow through.  We will also create piles of firewood, so sawing and kindling collecting will be one job, plus putting up bird boxes and maybe and owl house.  We hope to create a terraced garden where ultimately a forest garden will be planted and watered using grey water from the cabin.  Do join us – you will get fit, tanned, see a bit of the Dordogne and make friends for life around the campfire.
