Welcome to the Steward Community Woodland website
DANCE AT Fundraiser for Steward Community Woodland Sat 3rd October, 7.30 to 10.30pm Jubilee Hall, Chagford
Entry on the door: £7-10 (sliding scale)
After 15 years of successful sustainable living, the folk at Steward Wood are raising funds
to appeal against the refusal of planning permission to allow the low impact, permaculture
project to continue. Come, have a great dance while supporting Steward Community Woodland. DJ is Robert known for his ‘dance-at…’ events. **This is a no-alcohol dance.** 'dance-at…' is an unled, social, party, celebratory kind of dance event that has it's roots
in barefoot boogie style dance with a wide range of feel-good music. You are welcome to bring snacks and soft drink to share.
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...
