Countryside Management Students get creative

Studying Countryside Management at BMC is all about nature, the outdoors and developing unique skills to take out into the workplace and enrich your role as a rural specialist.

This week students took part in a Willow Workshop, coppicing the willow from the wreakeside area of the Brooksby campus and then building an intricate dome and tunnel structure to replace an old dilapidated bird hide near the ornamental lake.

Tutor Dominic Bowyer told us:

"It's really great for students to understand the seasonality and life cycles of nature and the coppicing of willow is actually doing us a favour, it is a useful way to manage a habitat and then actually create something from the material we have removed.

"Willow is extremely flexible and this is why it is often used in gardens and horticultural situations, and today's session is all about weaving, a greencraft that enables us to create a structure that can be used by other students and improves the college campus."
