The Woodlander's story so far...

The Neroche Woodlanders are building on many years' experience of using trees and woods to yield a positive impact on people's lives.  We know that woodlands offer great environments for learning, developing new skills, building personal confidence, and generating new social connections.  We know the value of bringing volunteers and professionals together to do something good for the landscape.  We know that multi-purpose forests can yield a sustainable supply of wood, while also being rich havens for wildlife.  And we are discovering the benefits to be had when disciplines and perspectives on the natural world have the chance to overlap.

Young Wood is a practical working woodland, and it is also becoming a meeting place, an outdoor classroom, and a place for respite, training and relaxation.  The Neroche Woodlanders represents a new partnership between the Forestry Commission, independent practitioners and volunteers to maximise the multiple values of this part of the Neroche Forest.  

We have established a social enterprise so that the revenue which can be generated from our activities can be used to support our social objectives.  And we are seeking to be a true community woodland - an expression of the aspirations of a wide community of place and interest, who share the 
governance and sense of common ownership of what we do.

This website describes the services we are beginning to offer, and the work we are doing at Young Wood.  It will evolve over the coming year as we develop our provision.  If you want to get involved or find out more, please contact us.
