The outdoor classroom is positioned at the border of woodland, pasture and orchard. It is a space full of potential and has been in the making since 2016 funded by the Summerfield Trust as a facility for Hawkwood’s local community. As word has spread, it is proving to be popular with community groups and venue hire customers alike. The infrastructure needs improvement especially because access is challenging due to narrow paths, steep ground and lots of trees.

Green woodworker Adrian Leaman has plan to create as much of the timber-work as possible from the surrounding mixed woodland.

Work will include felling trees, stripping bark and preparing timber for construction. Carpentry skills will be need to craft work surfaces and furniture. Some items will be permanent and others will be modular so they can be stored, moved and assembled as needed.

Give back to your local community, get involved in an exciting local project whilst enjoying the natural beauty Hawkwood has to offer.
