Welcome to the Steward Community Woodland website
Steward Community Woodland Under Threat
Our project is under threat following the Planning Inspectorate's decision in August 2016 to dismiss our Appeal against the Dartmoor National Park Authority's refusal of planning permission.
See our report on the Procession to the National Park HQ 'Taking the Woods to the Park' which was on Mon 3rd April
Our Message in January sets out more details of our current situation.
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. We are currently takng a break from holding volunteer weeks.
You can donate money to the project here.
