Draw what you hear

by WoodlandsTV ~ 21 May, 2019 ~ 10 comments

Draw What You Hear is an environmental education game that enhances your sensory experience of the place you're in. It encourages you to listen much more carefully than you otherwise might, and pick out individual sounds from the entire range of hearing. This gives you a greater sense of place, space, distance, weather, and the occupants and their activities in that space and where they might be.

The second challenge of this game is to draw the shapes of the sounds you are hearing – it's likely you have never tried to do this before! There are no restrictions on your mark making potential, no right or wrong way to represent sound on paper. The act of doing this will sharpen your senses, and connect your eyes and ears to your imagination in ways that you didn't know were possible!

Filmed on Woodbury Common in Devon.

Trees as Sources of Medicine

by WoodlandsTV ~ 3 May, 2019 ~ 11 comments

Dr Henry Oakeley, Garden Fellow at the Medicinal Garden of the Royal College of Physicians, London, introduces trees from around the world that have medicinal uses or connections. The ancient plane tree, Platanus orientalis subspecies insularis from the Island of Cos, off the coast of Greece, under which Hippocrates taught his medical students 2,300 years ago and parent of the London plane. Drimys winteri, a forest tree from Tierra del Fuego, whose fruits cured sailors of scurvy 450 years ago; along with Citrus trees whose fruits have been used for this since 1617. He talks about the olive tree, Olea europaea, source of olive oil, and the American sassafras tree, Sasafras albidum, once used to flavour children’s drinks but now the main source of the drug Ecstasy. To finish there is the pomegranate, Punica granatum and its elegant dwarf variety nana, whose juice was used in mediaeval times to treat fevers; and the fabulously ancient maidenhair tree Gingko biloba, whose extracts increase cerebral blood flow in ancient arteries to little effect, but may have more light-hearted properties. https://garden.rcplondon.ac.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Working with Horses in the Woods

by WoodlandsTV ~ 28 March, 2019 ~ 7 comments

Here we see Kate Mobbs-Morgan and her Ardennes horse Kipp at The Royal Bath & West Show, demonstrating their low impact timber extraction work. Kate explains how this method is particularly suited to wet, steep, small or environmentally sensitive or significant sites, where mechanical extraction might prove either impossible or unwelcome. Their emotional connection and extraordinary working relationship is clear as Kipp responds positively to Kate`s gentle voice and rope commands, to carry out the task efficiently and with enormous skill and strength.
