Community Workshops

A perfect opportunity to learn a variety of woodland crafts and skills, meet other interested people and have some fun in the woods.

Thanks to initial funding from the Belinda O'Flynn Trust, we offer woodland craft and conservation opportunities to local groups and individuals from the Bere Peninsula.

A packed lunch and sturdy footwear (boots not trainers) are needed for Workshops. Hot drinks and biscuits are provided for all volunteers, as are all tools required.

Workshop participants are asked to make their own way to Sallerton Wood. Please see the Location page of this website for the location of Sallerton Wood. Please car share where possible as parking at the woodland is limited.

Babes in the Wood

Woodland education and fun for accompanied 0 - 5 year-olds.

What happens?

Those keen to take part book their 0-5 year-old children in with us in advance through email, telephone or Facebook. (Places are limited.) The day runs from 10am - 3pm, everyone brings their own packed lunch and the wood-fuelled rocket stoves are available for hot drinks and there is a kitchen shelter in case it pours down.

The atmosphere is laid-back with no fixed agenda. For those already toilet trained there is a compost loo or 'wild wees' a-plenty for others still learning!

Activities are always overseen by Jane and Andy but parents are responsible for looking after their own children at all times in the woods. A complete change of clothes and footwear is recommended, including wellies for all!

Activities may include paddling and dam building in the stream, den building, low-level tree climbing, baking in the clay oven and craft creations with natural materials including clay face modelling ... with endless possibilities and we're always open to new suggestions.

We hope to continue these events roughly once a month throughout the year. We request a donation of £5 per child, payable on the day to help provide resources for Babes in the Wood.
