Our mission is to develop new ways of supporting young people to turn their ideas into practical action. Young people will get the chance to immerse in and reconnect with the natural world, establish their own woodland based enterprise, and to realise their potential by adding value to Scotland’s woodland resources.
Through the programme applicants get the chance to mentor with highly skilled craftspeople.
