It’s been a very successful weekend here at Kirkton community woodland. Willow expert Les Bates from Alligin Willows (Torridon) came along to teach an enthusiastic group how to make a Living Willow tunnel on Friday. The tunnel forms part of the Sensory Trail project, where different textures are laid along a path. On Saturday participants built two benches, one a living willow bench and the other an up-cycled bench made from redundant fence posts.
The benches are sited next to the Mythical Monster statues made from salvaged materials from a beach clean conducted by local primary school children. Thanks to Les for passing on his Willow Wisdom and to our keen participants who brought crisp, clear weather and good cheer. The trail will be officially opened on Wed 20th Nov.
