An amazing week of work by the Lower Mole Countryside Management Project. Great work – THANK YOU to all of you. Home-made cake for the volunteers, made with apples grown on the edge of Teazle Wood.
We are incredibly lucky to have an offer from Professor David Hawksworth CBE to lead a ‘fungal excursion’ (he knows this makes me smile every time I say or write it!) into Teazle Wood. Numbers are limited, and our heritage Teazle tours booked up straight away, so do book early to avoid disappointment.
