WHAT DOES THE DEER WOOD TRUST DO?
Provide a safe and inclusive place for local communities, socially disadvantaged people and all our visitors to experience well-being through woodland-based outdoor activities and therapies.
Allow space for people to de-stress, heal and connect with nature.
Preserve and care for this 12 1/2 acre native woodland through conservation woodland management practices.
Increase native tree cover in the UK through growing and planting of Deer Wood provenance stock.
Raise awareness of Earth care through selling provenance-grown trees, demonstrating sustainable living and facilitating participation in experiential learning.
PARTICIPATE, VISIT, VOLUNTEER
We have regular volunteers days where we invite anyone who wishes to spend some time in the wood to help with important woodland ecology work.
We value and appreciate how generously people have given their time and put in so much hard work over the past 7 years to help get major stages of the Tree Nursery and other important aspects completed.

Sustainable Off Grid Living
Marc and Lisa live here in harmony with nature, as the custodians of Deer Wood.
We have chosen to live an off-grid lifestyle in keeping with the needs of the land itself; treading lightly and respecfully with all our activities.
If you are interested in any aspect of learning more about how to live sustainably, where ever you are, we will be running courses from 2023.
