The concept of a Wood-Meadow involves the transformation of a limited habitat into a thriving woodland ecosystem. Planning, plant species selection, ground preparation and planting are only the first steps. Lack of active management results in a homogeneous woodland structure and allows the rapid establishment of native invasives such as bramble and nettle, which in turn prevent colonization by native woodland wildflowers.

We are delighted to be able to offer the site of the woodland as a location for delivering learning outside the classroom for schools. In partnership with OPAL (Open Air Laboratories), based at the Stockholm Environment Institute at the University of York, we have developed packs containing topics covered in the National Curriculum.
