The project has always had an educational focus and has been offered as an educational resource to schools, community groups and individuals. Educational workshops at schools and social inclusion centres are run when possible, these have included furniture making, living willow sculpture, musical instrument making, green woodworking and mushroom cultivation.

Also, where the local council fell trees in school grounds, a portable saw mill has been taken in to demonstrate timber milling. The timber has then been used to produce playground furniture to the children’s own design. Most of the school projects we are involved in are part of the eco schools initiative.

We both now fully endorse and support Forest Schools as Michaela is now a qualified Forest School Leader. We can run Forest School courses and support workshops for trainees here at Dunbeag and also at local area schools.
