I’m very excited to say I’ve got funding for a new project, which will take place this autumn. It’s called ‘In woods we forget things, at the wood edge we tell stories‘ – click for a blog which will document our progress. The project is funded by Shropshire Hills AONB and Shropshire Housing Group, and many many thanks to them.
The project will provide opportunities for three different groups from the community in south Shropshire to spend time in native woodlands, learn real, useful conservation skills, respond to place through poetry, and perform their own new site-specific work.
The three groups involved are from:
- Bishop’s Castle Primary School
- St Mary’s CE Primary School, Bucknell
- The Working Together Group – a Ludlow-based registered charity who provide a focus for people with learning disabilities and their families
These groups are matched, respectively, with woodlands at:
- Brook Vessons, Stiperstones
- Tru Wood, Bucknell
- Brineddin Wood, Chapel Lawn
I’m really looking forward to starting work on this.
