About Woodlands of the futureHelp shape the woodlands of the future with thinning and felling.
Working in the woodland alongside staff and other volunteers, you’ll help us to manage the destiny of our trees, selecting the best of the older trees and creating the glades and spaces around them that will help them to become the ancient trees of the future. There’ll be some scrub clearance and bonfires to keep us warm, plus a wide range of other estate and garden tasks to keep things varied and interesting.
About the accommodation
Little Craig-y-Borion Farm sits at the heart of the 900-acre Colby Estate. The farmhouse dates back at least 200 years and is an old stone and lime-mortar building restored and refurbished in 2015. Heated by wood burners and solar panels with a newly replanted orchard and kitchen garden in the making, it sits in a beautiful location far from the road and surrounded by woodland and meadows. There is a large network of woodland paths right on the doorstep and the beach at Amroth is a 30-minute walk away through lovely woodland.
Notes for guests

A standard kit list can be found on our Essential Information page. Accommodation is in two three-person dorms.
