Willow Cultivation

Specialist
Summary information

Our WET System has specially designed and constructed ponds and earth banks, densely planted with wetland trees and marginal plants. As wastewater flows through, it is both purified by microbiological action and transpired by growing plants. In the process, a beautiful, species-rich wildlife habitat is created, including a willow resource that can be used for basketry, hurdles, garden features or fuel, depending on the coppice cycle.

- Learn how the willow is cultivated and coppiced in order to keep the willow beds healthy and promote optimum growth
- Learn the traditional way that willow is sorted into lengths for weaving
- Learn the best conditions for willow to be planted for growing your own at home

During the morning session will be covering all the above points. After lunch we will continue with some willow coppicing. If you can stay on for the full day the morning workshop can be discounted by £5. Please bring waterproof clothing, wellies and a packed lunch. All tools will be provided.
