The practical element of the course will cover the proper care of hand tools, tool sharpening, safety considerations, cutting and laying the hedge, securing the hedge using natural crooks and species ID.
In addition we will also discuss alternatives to hedge laying, restoring badly neglected hedges, the cultural, historical and environmental important of hedges, the hedge as a resource and the use of brash to make biochar.
You are welcome to bring your own tools if you have them already, but I suggest borrowing ours and completing the course before you make any purchases.
In order to ensure a quality experience for all, I only take six people on this course. The course is suitable for beginners and improvers.
