Learn how to correctly lay hedges to create natural boundaries and protect flora and fauna. This course will cover everything you need to know and equip you with the skills and techniques you will need to successfully complete a section of hedge. No experience required as this course is designed for beginners and refreshers wanting to learn and hone in their skills, as well as those who just want to practice skills already learnt.
The purpose of Hedgelaying is to restore a hedge that has become sparse at the base, or has grown without being trimmed. Hedgelaying thickens a hedge therefore giving more shelter for livestock on farms and a habitat for nesting birds and wildlife.
This course takes place outside, from 10.00 until 15.00, so please dress for the weather and bring a strong pair of thorn proof gloves and wear sturdy footwear.
