NCFed events….. every year we hold an AGM & Gathering which moves around the country, hosted by a different Coppice Group each time. This is where we get together, do our annual organisational business, network, learn and have fun. We also usually run a Spring Conference which takes a look at a particular issue affecting the UK Coppice Industry in detail. Please keep an eye out below for details of these events.

2016 NCFed AGM & Gathering, 14th to 16th October 2016
Hosted by The East Midlands Coppice Network, Hill Holt Wood, Lincolnshire
Hill Holt Wood is a 14 hectare sustainably managed ancient woodland situated on the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire border. It’s a wonderful and enriching place to visit with facilities ranging from permaculture gardens, environmental sculpture, woodland walks, computer facilities, workshops and composting loos!
Established in 1995 it now offers an alternative education for children excluded from school, training for the unemployed, courses on countryside management, country and rural crafts, survival and leadership skills and “unusual” methods of construction!
