Welcome! Moors Wood is a small private woodland owned and managed by Sarah and Ian Blenkinsop as a nature reserve and as a sustainably managed source of various wood products.

Sarah is a freelance Environmental Educator, Lecturer and Forest School Leader. Based at her own site at Moors Wood, Sarah provides fun natural/recycled craft workshops; play or storytelling sessions; eco themed parties; workshops on food preservation, setting up an organic garden, setting up a composting area or keeping chickens; or training courses in various woodcraft and play skills. These services are available for adults and/or children. Sarah is also very happy to come to you and deliver any of the above, or to give talks to groups.

Follow the links to find out more about what is on offer. Please click on the photos if you need to make them larger. Also visit Sarah's other site, The Compost Bin, for more general info and advice on sustainable living.

One door closes, another opens!

Having spent a lot of time thinking very hard about the future, I have come to the conclusion that the unforeseen unexpected loss of my volunteer position with Garden Organic and Herefordshire Council (after 10 years of volunteering) has finally freed me to follow and enable the vision I talked about last May at The Eden Project/ Big Lunch Extras weekend (Best.Weekend.Ever!) 


One door closes, another opens and this has finally allowed me to get on with the future me. I have now completed and filed my School for Social Entrepreneurs application for a new social enterprise venture, which will encompass the volunteering activities I previously carried out.  Forms to convert my dormant Ltd company to a CIC are ready to be filed. I hope this will allow those who cannot employ me as Moors Wood (usually because they are grant funded with conditions applied) will still be able to access my expertise. I also want to carry on "to give something back" to my community and setting up a CIC seems a good model.


So, watch this space for exciting news at Moors Wood!
