CWA Enterprising Woods: Forest Gardening Workshop, Leckmelm Wood, Ullapool

12th October
As part of the CWA Enterprising Woods Highland project, CWA is running a practical workshop on Forest Gardening in partnership with Ullapool Community Trust. The workshop will be run by Emma Planterose Magenta at the off-grid forest base of the founders of Reforesting Scotland in Leckmelm Wood near Ullapool.

Workshop Objective:

This workshop builds on the Growing and Harvesting Food in Community Woods seminar held at Torridon, April 2013 (the seminar report is available at and scroll down).
Focusing on forest gardening techniques the workshop aims to share information through practical involvement and encourage sharing of experiences. This workshop is for people involved in community woodlands, food growing, foraging and woodland management. We are aiming to bring people together from across the community woodlands sector to develop/ increase their skills and knowledge around growing food in community managed woods and land.


We will be based at Leckmelm Wood, Ullapool – click link for map - Leckmelm
