Green Woodsman and Green Woodworker
As well as managing a number of woodlands locally, Tom is an adviser and visiting practitioner in our Green wood working section at Boot Up! Having trained at the Green Wood Centre and under various woodsmen he brings his knowledge to assist our young people to turn trees into useful things including benches and ladders used around the site. His passion is grounded in the appreciation of the process rather than product although the end products turn out pretty nice too! Tom also teaches the Woodland Environment modules on our L3 Forest School Practitioners Leadership Award.
He’s often accompanied by Rhubarb his dog, who’s role at Boot Up! is his only claim to being a working dog.
