Hedges are a key feature in the Forest of Bowland landscape. As well as acting as stock boundaries and providing shelter they also make great habitats – and larders - for wildlife. Laying hedges to keep them healthy and stock-proof is a real skill so, if you'd like to have a go yourself, don't miss our latest training opportunities:
Thurs 2nd and Fri 3rd March West Bradford

Each day will run from 9.30am until approximately 4pm and all tools and instruction will be provided. You will need to wear old, outdoor clothes, strong footwear and tough gloves and bring a hot drink and packed lunch.
