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.

Spring Greens Schools event at Court of Noke, Herefordshire

Inaugeral outing for Son of Algy, Magpie and Fleck and Peck the Serama pullets

Fabulous marquee, where I ran 45 min long workshops  throughout the day, on composting and chicken keeping for six different primary school groups. Each child also got to decorate a paper cup and plant a seed in it to take away :)

The amazing barns

The theme of the event, held over two days , was 'The Idealistic Home' and what it might contain.

My idealistic home obviously contained composting, chickens and lots of veg growing space along with a wildlife habitat :)

RIP Algy the Serama cockerel

RIP Algy. The one and only @Algythechicken. 

He died peacefully last night around midnight, whilst being cradled in my arms. Much loved companion, who has done so much to educate (and enchant) people about the delights of keeping chickens. 
Those of you who have seen me at events, or workshops or ever been to Moors Wood in the last 4 years will no doubt have met Algy! Small in stature but big in personality and affection

I shall miss your company enormously whether at events, in my tent at festivals, 

when we did workshops and shows, at festivals, 

in the polytunnel and just by my side pottering in the garden.

Fly high and free little fellow and enchant everyone, wherever it is you are headed.
