Logs for Labour
Logs for Labour is an exchange scheme. Woodland owners who would like local residents to help manage their woodland (to the owner’s specification, and ensuring that the work promotes biodiversity) can offer ‘logs’. Local residents who are happy to work outside with hand tools in return for logs can offer ‘labour’. Keep up to date with log offers: ‘like’ our Facebook site
For all the events below, please bring sturdy shoes and gloves; a hand saw and/or loppers (ideally both); and lunch and a warm drink where appropriate. Only hand tools are allowed for insurance reasons. Under-16s are welcome as long as they are supervised by a responsible adult. Unless the wood is explicitly described as seasoned, it will need to be stored for at least a year before burning.
The 2015/16 season of Logs for Labour is now finished. Please come back in October 2016!
