Rewilding: Conversations on the Ground

by WoodlandsTV ~ 28 May, 2020 ~ comments welcome

Rewilding: it sounds great, but it's complicated. We hopefully all agree that it's a good thing to improve the health and biodiversity of our environment. But what does it mean in practice? What are the common misconceptions? What are the real challenges and obstacles to a greener, wilder future? Our film maker Jemma Cholawo interviewed a knowledgeable selection of active 'rewilders' in rural Scotland and the Lake District to ask what it means to them. What does it mean to you? Let us know in the comments.

Lola: Carving in the Woods

by WoodlandsTV ~ 1 May, 2020 ~ one comment

Lola is a graduate in Sculpture and Environmental Art, which she studied at Glasgow School of Art. Here she is in the woods on the Falkland Estate in Fife, beginning a new carving project. This is her first carving in a while, and she was feeling inspired to practice her skills and enjoy the peace and solitude of working with wood in the woodland, while camping in a bell tent with her adventurous cat, Mushu.

Hutting Part Two: Ninian Stuart

by WoodlandsTV ~ 13 March, 2020 ~ 5 comments

"If you have a piece of land and want to build a little getaway for the weekend, it's actually not that hard", says Ninian Stuart of the Falkland Estate in Fife. Ninian's hut is to him a "Do Nothing Hut", so named by some friends who wrote a haiku poem about it. It's a place to be still, to breathe, to take a break from busy life and remember who you are.

River Keekle Restoration

by WoodlandsTV ~ 28 February, 2020 ~ 26 comments

Woodlands have been working with the West Cumbria Rivers Trust to restore the River Keekle near Whitehaven in Cumbria. It was an open cast coal mine until the early nineties, when the riverbed was lined with plastic in an attempt to keep buried toxic waste out of the river. The river restoration project is now removing this horrible plastic and repairing the river to a more natural state, to prevent flooding and restore the health and biodiversity of the surrounding area.
