We carried out a living willow project with The Wildflower Centre, Liverpool in the spring this year. The project was to create a sheltered space using living willow where local families could take their small children to play. We worked with local volunteers over 2 days to design and plant the structures. The willow has grown really well and the volunteers are doing a great job of maintaining their new park feature.
I cut the first living willow rods of the new season today, there was snow on the distant lakeland hills but it was a nice warm afternoon in the sun with frost lingering in the shaded places. Our first school project will be in 8 days time when we work with a school to build a willow area in their grounds.
We still have some days available if you would like a living willow project for you school or community group.
