The book, A Woodland Year by Ben Law, is an excellent resource and inspiration for tapping into forest economy and 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. This is a profound book, enjoyed by the whole family, lovingly 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. Within its pages are some of the fundamental keys to how we can achieve a lower carbon society. To learn more about Ben Law and his other books and projects you can go to his website.
