Following a successful first course, people are being invited to sign up for another free training course. Tir Coed will be running a second 12-week training course in private woodland, near Bethlehem, north of Haverfordwest. This will be the second course on offer as part of a year-long series of woodland training and activity sessions in Pembrokeshire being organised by Tir Coed.

The course will commence on the 18th of September 2017 and will run on Monday’s and Tuesday’s. We will be delivering Woodland Management. It will be possible to achieve two units of level 1 Agored Cymru accreditation in Sustainable Woodland Management.

Advance booking is essential and priority will be given to people out of work or who may need some additional support. Help is available with transport and care costs to those who need it.

If you or someone you know may be interested in taking part in the training course or just want more information please get in touch with the Pembrokeshire Coordinators sirbenfro@tircoed.org.uk (Lowri) or pembs@tircoed.org.uk (Jim) or give Tir Coed a call on 01970 636909.

Tir Coed also organise bespoke activity sessions for groups of people who want to enjoy the natural environment and the woodland. Sessions provide various activities such as greenwood craft, foraging and conservation. Activity sessions are free, open to groups of all ages and ability, and are particularly aimed at groups who provide support services. If you are interested in a group activity session, please get in touch with us.

Tir Coed is a charity based in Mid-West Wales that engages people with woodlands through volunteering, training and activities that introduce people to a variety of woodland related skills whilst also giving them the health and social benefits of accessing woodlands.

All of the activities undertaken during Tir Coed projects improve the health and accessibility of the woodland, creating a community resource that can be enjoyed by all, long after the Tir Coed projects have finished.

This project is funded through LEADER.
