Welcome to the Steward Community Woodland website
Growing Days at Steward Wood
Come and get involved with our beautiful Growing Area.
On Tuesdays we invite people to come and help in our Growing Area. A healthy veggie lunch is provided for all involved, if you are in the local area or want to travel down for the day come along and spread the word! A helping hand big or small can make a huge difference and children are especially welcome. A typical day runs from 10-4pm. Please confirm your attendance by calling 01647 440233 and leaving a voice message or by emailing us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are Steward Community Woodland, a group of people who are living and working together and have been experimenting with...
- permaculture food growing and land use
- community dynamics
- renewable energy and appropriate technology
- building our own dwellings using low-impact materials
- small-scale woodland management
- experiential and home education
We live on 32 acres of plantation woodland on a steep hillside, located in the beautiful Wray Valley on the edge of Dartmoor. The community was founded in 2000 and is currently twelve adults and nine children.
There are several ways you can arrange a visit...
Volunteering - most of our visitors initially come as volunteers, exchanging volunteer time for food and accommodation. This is open to anyone; prior booking is essential. Volunteer weeks coming up are: week commencing 20th Oct, 10th Nov, 1st Dec 2014; 2nd Feb, 23rd Feb, 16th Mar, 13th Apr 2015 (NB. weeks in winter may be cancelled if weather very cold).
