Woodland Workshop – Kindling

STOP PRESS – New Time 3 pm Please let us know if you are coming using the contact form.

Ever wondered why those nets of kindling you get in the supermarket cost £4 or £5? We think it is definitely worth figuring out how to make your own.
Come along to Fowlshatch Copse on Sunday 21 September 10am  3pm and have a go at developing your skills – safely! We have a number of small axes to be used, but if you have your own bring it along.
Please use the contact form to let us know if you are coming along and how many people. Dogs and children welcome. (We will send a map,and directions!)
Since we cannot all be chopping at the same time, please also bring something to eat and share. Everyone will be able to collect some kindling for free – the cold weather is on its way. Log Bags for sale £3 each.
We are also happy to answer questions about the Logs4Labour events for the 2014-15 season.

Bags of logs for collection.

Take a look at the gallery. 12 people, 2 cakes, litres and litres of squash, and more than 10 bags of logs, and a much tidier wood! Thank you to all who came, and if you want some logs there are a few leftover. Contact us to sort out a time if you want to collect unseasoned hardwood logs (perfect for next winter!) Full bags are £5 each – and you get to keep the bag!

Marshlands L4L Saturday 24 May

log bagFREE event! Join us in Hammer for a Logs4Labour woodland workout.
Saturday 24 May at 10am – 2ish.
We are delighted to be invited to Marshlands by Jo and Matt  – they  even have a new bridge to replace the one washed away in the deluge last month.
About the wood –  it was once part of the Weald Ironworks known as ‘Pophole Hammer’.  Although some evidence of the ironworks can be seen, the area has returned back to native woodland.  2.5 acres of native deciduous trees such as oak, willow, beech, lime, hazel & birch.  We will be helping clear and manage the woods.
Logs available for a donation (to keep the scheme running) at the end.
Also Really Useful Log Bags £3 each.

  • Bring gloves, wear boots and bring loppers if you have them, (we will have some tools to borrow).
  • Drinks and cakes provided, please bring a packed lunch.
  • And…waterproofs – the forecast is not great.

See you there!
