High Weald

billhookcoppiceForest Garden Shovelstrode is a low impact, sustainable forest garden. Owners Charles Hooper and Lisa Aitken, will use their experience of working as horticulturalists and the principles of permaculture, to demonstrate how to reduce our carbon footprint.

Existing ancient woodland provides a backdrop for Forest Gardening and Woodland Craft courses such as forest garden design and maintenance, basket weaving, trug and chair making, coracle boat building and boomerang making. Plants and seeds, fruits, honey, oils and dyes, and greenwood products will be on sale. Camping facilities available.

The project has been supported with Leader + funding from the Wealden & Rother Rural (WARR) Partnership.
