The Good Day Out
A course for complete beginners to traditional hedge-laying and those seeking to add to woodland management or landscape gardening skills, and a great present for garden lovers and rural skill enthusiasts. Learn about local methods and traditions of hedge-laying, traditional hand tools, natural history of hedgerows whilst receiving hands on experience of laying an actual hedge within the beautiful countryside of the Brecon Beacons.
Traditional hedge-laying provides dense cover at ground level for livestock and wildlife, consolidating the network of fruiting ‘green corridors’ linking other habitats. Normally, hedge laying can be conducted between late October and early March whilst the hedging plants are dormant but please note that this activity is for small group bookings for a minimum of 4 people, but single participants can join in on most group days. Please enquire for other dates for autumn & winter 2017/8..
