Going Birch Crazy Again!

Join us for a day of celebrating the wonderful world of the birch tree right here in Vert Woods.

From birch tree tapping (for wine and other drinks), making fires in all weather and producing great firewood, whittling spoons, producing furniture and herbs, as well as examining the folklore and cycle of birch trees.

This is very hands on. From cutting your own birch tree sapling (as part of our clearing work), we have Tom Daniell of Old Tree Brewery leading us in some seasonal birch tapping and then tasting what you can make, Christine Meadows filling you full of amazing facts about what birch trees can do, and Stewart Boyle showing how that sapling can offer fire in pouring rain and great firewood in less than 4 months if you know what you are doing.
