New Woodland Works project with Forest of Avon Trust

We are excited to be involved in a new Learning Difficulties Development Fund project in South Gloucestershire, working with the Forest of Avon Trust. The project will be based in the trust’s new wood, The Retreat, near Bitton. It aims to train people with learning difficulties in woodland management and to make sustainable products from the wood to sell locally.

Participants will have the opportunity to gain a John Muir Conservation Award to recognise their achievements. When the project has finished we hope that people will feel confident enough to move on to working independently with local conservation groups as volunteers.
