We'll be getting on with the coppice fence we started a few weekends ago. No previous experience needed. It involves weaving flexible hazel rods between posts, simple & satisfying. If you fancy it, you can take a turn at splitting rods - an easy skill to learn, also good fun.Tim will be on site from 10.30 and we'll see what we can get done by lunchtime. Bring a picnic if you fancy lunch at the Tree Nursery - it's looking wonderful at the moment.See More
