HoneyWoods Events – Native Trees – Oak
Welcome to Native Trees, a new course across spring and summer which will introduce you to five of our native trees and invite you to connect with them deeply.
Each day will focus on one tree, starting with its biology as a way in to learning about the folklore and crafts that connect us with our landscape.
We will work with each tree to learn more about what trees are; how they grow, how they interact with each other and with us, and how they connect and define the ecosystems around them.
Each session includes a practical activity using sustainably harvested parts of the tree, from weaving and natural ink making to herbal remedies and woodcraft.
We have chosen five tree species for their unique place in our heritage and the story of our country’s woodlands.
