Welcome to the Steward Community Woodland website
2nd, 16th, and 30th July 10am-4pm
Steward Wood conservation days are an opportunity to volunteer and help with the valuable work of increasing the bio-diversity of the woodland, creating a wildlife rich habitat for many species. From tree planting to coppicing, control of invasive plants and surveying to habitat creation. Come along and learn new skills, meet new people and enjoy our beautiful woodland.
Please bring a packed lunch if coming for the whole day. Tea, herbal tea and water from our spring all provided.
The public inquiry is officially over and we wont hear the result until July/August 2016.
As soon as we hear we will make this news public via our website, Facebook page & our mailing list. (Sign up form on home page below)
We would also like to say a huge Thank You for all the support we have been given through this process.

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...
