Spend some time with nature
Brickmakers Wood is being transformed into a beautiful and tranquil woodland in the heart of Suffolk for learning, contemplation and as an aid to palliative care.
Turning environmental disasters into community dreams
Brickmakers Wood is part of the Eden-Rose Coppice Trust woodland network. We transform urban environmental disasters into beautiful, natural high-biodiversity woodland settings for people living with a terminal illness. We achieve this whilst providing mentoring, training and team-building experiences for vulnerable members of the community.
"The Eden-Rose Coppice Trust invites children and adults including those with; disabilities, mental ill health, behavioral or emotional difficulties, those who are long term unemployed or NEET and the isolated elderly to work with them in the planning, transformation and maintenance of their neglected green spaces."
We provide work experience, volunteering opportunities, training in horticulture and woodland skills, mentoring and most importantly the life skills needed to thrive in the world beyond.
This not only increases biodiversity in the area by managing and creating more habitats and green pathways for the local priority species such as the Western European hedgehog or the seriously threatened stag beetle, but also makes it possible for the people with life limiting illnesses and local communities to enjoy the uniquely adapted woodlands.
Big Dreams Small Spaces
Between the months of June and September we were filmed for BBC2's programme Big Dreams Small Spaces, hosted by Monty Don.
