Welcome to the Steward Community Woodland website
Sat 28th June, Noon to 4pm
Come and visit our low impact structures, renewable energy systems, permaculture gardens, woodland management operations, and the beautiful woodland. As well as guided tours, there'll be refreshments and cake round the fire along with information and books to peruse.
You can visit us along the cycleway from Moretonhampstead. Parking is limited so please walk, cycle or share transport if possible.
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...
