Wild Roots

We have a few linked projects which have grown out of Hallr Wood activities.

Young Adults Group At another site near Baltonsborough, we’ve been running a Young Adults group on Mondays from 9:30-2:30 since 2016. This is an open access group supporting young adults who maybe struggling to find employment or flexible training prospects. We follow the interests of participants wherever possible with a focus on developing small holding skills, growing, fencing, hedge laying, pruning and coppicing. We usually cook a soup lunch (using produce we’ve grown) on the camp fire. In 2018 Andrew and Arthur had a stall at the Bath and West Show where Arthur offered tool sharpening and also sold some of his beautiful products.

We welcome more volunteer mentors with practical skills to help us. We have also set up our own community organization ‘Wild Roots’ with the current attendees taking a leading role. We hope to set up our own web site soon. Please contact Deb Millar for more information deb@wilderwoods.org

We have also been running a growing for well being project at the same site, funded through Awards for All with our Monday attendees helping out with hosting. This runs on Thursdays from 9:30-3:00. Sessions will resume in March and all are welcome. We especially need more volunteers for this project. For more information please contact Jane Sweetman jane@wilderwoods.org
