Heartfelt thanks to Wytham Woods who have not only produced a beautiful and inspiring book, but are helping us at Hill End survive in these difficult times - please do support us & share!Breaking news - We have published our first ever book of poetry, one of the outcomes of the Woodland Words residency of 2019-20!
A review from Lesley Saunders, poet:
"How deeply we humans are connected with, and often tragically distanced from, the natural world is the leitmotif of this enchanting collaboration between a plant scientist and a landscape historian, whose purpose is to celebrate and commemorate Wytham Woods in Oxfordshire, England. Their dialogue-in-poetry explores with precision of thought and image the multifarious ways in which the ecologies of people and woodland are inextricably intertwined and interdependent. This beautiful book succeeds in being truly 'a landscape for legions'."
We had planned a launch event to accompany the release of 'The Woods of Hazel', but of course that can't happen. Instead, our Writer in Residence Sarah Watkinson and her collaborator Romola Parish will deliver some readings by video clip.
Selling for £6.99, your purchase will support outdoor education for young people of all backgrounds, as for each copy sold, we will donate £5 to Hill End Charitable Trust. The price is also inclusive of postage and packing costs, so it's a real bargain!
If you don't know about Hill End Outdoor Education Centre and our connection to it, you'll be glad to hear that it's the star of our next episode of the Laboratory with Leaves - which will be released very soon! 😁
