Some news

Bookings are coming in thick and fast since our publicity guru, Chris Baker appeared on BBC Radio Devon last friday. The dry stone walling course is completely booked up with three on the reserves list and the hedge laying courses are selling like hot cakes so book now if you want one: https://www.drst.org.uk/pg/Diary.aspx

There are still plenty of spaces on the turf hedging course. This is an essential skill for hedgelayers, enabling them to repair small sections of hedge bank simply using a mattock and a shovel. You can book a place on that course here: https://www.drst.org.uk/pg/course/coursedet.aspx?id=111

One rural skill that is not taught by DRST is the art of mowing with the scythe. Jeremy Weiss has been running courses on this all through the summer and on thursday 23rd of September he’s running a scythe workshop for improvers. You can find details here: https://properedges.com/courses/

  1. Hello, my name is Elliott Fairs and pre-covid I was booked onto the turf hedging course with yourselves. This was bought for me by my mother-in-law, Andres Wilkins.

    I still have the voucher so wondered whether there were any spaces on your next course that I could join in on?

    Many thanks

    Elliott
