About the event
The course aims to provide a practical introduction to the traditional craft of hedgelaying. You will learn how to prepare a hedge for laying, how to cut and lay the stems using hand tools, how to place hedging stakes within the hedge and how to bind the hedge on completion. You will also learn why this traditional woodland management skill is so beneficial to wildlife, creating the ideal conditions for many plants, animals, insects & birds to thrive.
The course is designed for absolute beginners wanting to learn, or for those who already have limited experience but want to practice and improve.
