Are you in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction and looking for a rewarding way to progress that recovery?

Carry out a range of practical skills contributing to the management of local woodlands, including: tree felling/coppicing, green wood work, fire lighting and many other activities; whilst also learning about the woodlands and the animals and plants that inhabit them.

Whilst the sessions will contain some physical activities, you can develop at your own pace and will not be asked to carry out any tasks you feel unable to complete.

Courses are 1 day a week and we have regular course dates available at our 3 woodland locations which run for between 5 and 12 weeks.

Days run from 10am - 3pm

The course is free and includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day

Boots and waterproofs can be provided for those without.

“I’m enjoying the experience whatever the weather brings, learning new skills, and about the wildlife and woodland. We have built up a good team. Thanks for giving me the opportunity!”

“Pete and Lorna are very encouraging in what they would like us to do. They are very patient and very approachable. Would never miss coming” 

We run regular 5-12 week Woodland Rescue courses at all 3 of our locations
