Next Tuesday, 20th March, there will be the first installment of green infrastructure input for the public space of Millennium Wood, from Cornwall Council using European regional development funds.
There is an opportunity to get involved in laying hedges, and instruction will be given, though tools are not provided. Therefore a sharp billhook or axe, plus pruning shears/ loppers and gloves, etc., would equip anyone wanting to learn. The leader/facilitator has also asked that participants bring eye protection.
