The Woodland Year
The Woodland Year is an intimate account of Ben’s yearly cycle of work, his naturally attuned lifestyle and deep emersion in the very fabric of the nature of his woods.
A month-by-month journey through Ben Law's woodland in the Sussex Weald.
This a celebration of every aspect of sustainable woodland management; the cycles of nature, the seasonal tasks, wild food gathering, wine making, useful recipes, coppice crafts, round pole timber frame eco-building, nature conservation, species diversity, tree profiles and using horses for woodland work.
There are also sections by 12 guest woodlanders. This is a profound book that is both practical and poetic. It lyrically describes a way of life that is both economically and ecologically viable and sets a new standard for managing our woods in a low impact, sustainable way. As such, it holds some of the fundamental keys to how we can achieve a lower carbon society.
