Introduction to Hedgelaying - nr Crawley - Re-scheduled date (23/11/2019) Saturday, 23rd November 2019 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Leader:  Tom Simpson

Hedgelaying is a traditional rural skill used to create a stock-proof field barrier. Yet hedgerows themselves are an important habitat for many species of wildlife. Whether you have a large area of land or a relatively small garden the addition of a hedgerow can serve as an attractive, functional feature which will also benefit birds, insects, small mammals and many other species.

In this practical one-day course Tom Simpson will introduce all aspects of hedge laying and teach the basic skills required to lay a hedge. We will identify suitable tree species and hedges, use traditional hand tools to grub-out, pleach, stake and bind a hedge.

This course requires no previous knowledge or experience and is well suited to anyone wishing to try hedge-laying for the first. 

Roll's Field, Tinsley Green near Gatwick Airport.

Meeting place directions and map will be sent nearer the time.
