Annual Gathering & AGM 2018

Posted on May 9, 2018 by

BOOK NOW ! only one week to go . . .

Join Llais y Goedwig supporters, partners and members of community woodland groups from across Wales at the Annual Gathering; this year in the picturesque surroundings of Wild Spirit Woods on the Merthyr Mawr estate.

The site well known for woodland activities, will be transformed for the weekend into a meeting place for discussion, activities and workshops. There will also be site visits to nearby community woodlands, and plenty of opportunity to enjoy the woodland or the beach ( only 20 mins walk).
Book now to enjoy practical sessions from Earthbound, Wild Spirit Bushcraft and Dryad Bushcraft and more including flint fire-lighting, mallet making and spoon carving.  Learn how to sharpen and maintain tools with Thom from Quercus County Crafts, and explore the woodlands on a foraging trail in Welsh and English with Marit from Permaculture Wales.  Let’s not forget the workshop sessions to explore funding, making woodlands pay and policy discussions, and the site visits to inspirational local community woodlands.  When dusk falls enjoy time round the campfires, with pizza, curry, storytelling and song.    
New for this year are dedicated forest school activities for children during the weekend. There are sessions daily to correspond to the agenda with a shared lunch.
On Sunday there is an opportunity for groups or individuals to lead a session or workshop on a topic of their choice. Please get in touch if you have something in mind. Otherwise enjoy the woodland, the beach and the great company!
