An amazing opportunity to learn some timber framing skills whilst staying in a beautiful setting is available.

Pentiddy Woods in Pensilva, Cornwall are in the process of building a timber framed straw bale house amongst their 27 acre plot of coppice woodland and allotment style food garden, with polytunnels and livestock.

Starting from next week the project has two volunteer spaces to fill, helping to timber frame the outdoor kitchen and veranda.

An Inverness-shire farm in Scotland has found a finance solution that has helped them begin their journey to reduce their carbon footprint and decrease energy bills.

The working family farm Corrimony, next to the RSPB reserve, has been farmed by the Girvan family since 1941. It was originally heated by old fashioned oil and wood fire heating systems which was inefficient and led to expensive energy bills as oil prices rose. The three cottages and farmhouse are stepping into the present with a centralised wood chip biomass boiler.
