#iWill Youth Action Hedgelaying Skills session at Dosthill Park
About the event
Hedgelaying is the process of bending and partially cutting (pleaching) through the stems of a line of
shrubs or small trees near ground level and arching the stems without breaking them, so they can
grow horizontally and be intertwined. This provides a great habitat for nesting birds.
Join us to give this traditional countryside skill a try with expert Martin Evans from Churnet
Woodland Crafts. Hot drinks and light refreshments will be provided. Wrap up warm though as we
will be outside!
Booking is essential, and spaces are limited so book your place now to avoid missing out!
Open to all 13 - 25 year olds, this is your chance to give conservation volunteering a try! If you want hours to count towards Duke of Edinburgh volunteering, gain valuable practical work experience for school/college, or give you a taste of working outdoors, you're welcome to join our friendly volunteer group.
