It has been another busy year on the Land and Wildlife course. During the estate skills lesson students had the opportunity to practice their coppicing skills at Siccaridge Woods. The harvested wood was used during our hedgelaying and greenwood crafts activities. The students got an opportunity to try their hand at drystone walling working with FWAG.
A variety of wildlife surveys were conducted over the year; water voles at Greystones Farm, freshwater invertebrates along the river Frome and woodland flora.
Fieldtrips included investigating a tree planting project at Lower Moor and receiving a talk on farming and wildlife at Macaroni Farm.
A residential trip for the Countryside Tourism and Recreation unit allowed the students to take part in a variety of outdoor activities at PGL in South Wales.
