have worked as a shepherd,stalker, ponyman, zoo-keeper and have farmed organically for 10 years
returned to managing the woods to earn my living coppicing and producing rustic fencing, charcoal, weaving baskets,jewellery from bark
secretary of Malvern Hills Coppice Network

live off the land gathering natures harvest - pretty self sufficient - can show you how to live out of the hedgerows, kill and cook your own supper or how to avoid shopping in supermarkets, improve your health, and eat cheaply and organically

have been a WWOOF host for a number of years & am used to sharing my life and home with others and helping promote sustainable practices

the most popular events are either the informal woodland and farm walks or the charcoal burning course (you get hot and dirty and have the option to stay thro the night managing the burn drinking and chatting)

happy to provide one to one tuition and other advice


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


The walk takes between 1 to 2 hours depending on what season - stout footwear is required (no dogs - as i bring my own)
Charcoal Course - we will pack one kiln and empty a second - the kiln is not lit until after dark - please bring gloves and wear stout footwear - may be postponed if there is heavy rain!
