We set up a training organisation called Rural Skills Trust in Spring 2014 and delivered our first hedgelaying and coppice practice courses the following Autumn. Any DIY training set up needs to be financially independent and sustainable, we do not intend to get involved with any government funded qualifications and schemes. So we have had a small group of committed members volunteering their time to deliver courses. We also rely on the generosity of independent donors.

Through this process we intend to look out for those interested in becoming tutors and being more involved. We are also looking at offering short residential placements in the future.
