We’re here to make small British woodlands thrive, by connecting people with trees and timber in new and meaningful ways. We run a maker-space, courses, events and a community woodland group in Dartington, South Devon.
"Along with my team at The Woodland Presents, we are working to make small British woodlands thrive, by connecting people with trees and timber in new and meaningful ways. We run a maker-space, courses, events and a community woodland group in South Devon, with the aim to innovate the type of activities that happen in woods, and bring a wide range of people into contact with trees.
We also arrange bespoke events for a variety of occasions from music gigs, to week-long camps, lectures, pop-up restaurants, film viewings, silent discos and many more, all encouraging people to spend time in the woods and connect more fully with the beauty of British woodland.
Both myself and my partner Faze would be happy to come into schools and offer a talk on the need to connect with the woods, to support schools in using the venue created in The Nest and share information on courses and trainings in our WoodLab.
