Pepperwood Volunteers

A team of volunteers help look after Pepperwood, clearing brambles, maintaining paths and coppicing hazel.

The volunteers also make sustainable charcoal from felled wood and, using traditional tools, make fences, benches and other items that are sold to help fund Pepperwood’s maintenance.
