What you'll learn

  • Introduction to Hedge-Laying

    Before heading out to the fields we will teach you the theory of hedge-laying. You’ll learn when & why you might want to lay hedges before looking at techniques, tools and regional variations.

  • Hands-on practice

    Head out to the Humble by Nature fields where Farmer Tim will demonstrate how to use the tools safely and lay a section of hedge. Then it’s time to have a go yourself.
    Farmer Tim will be on hand to help and guide you to create your own section of laid hedge.

  • Q&A

    The course will finish with tea and cake and the opportunity to ask any further questions.


  • The whole day was relaxed, informative, and fun.
    And, despite the energy expelled in hacking my way through brambles and blackthorn, I think I put on weight - the food was so good.

  • A really good practical guide, lots of hand on experience and great fun. Would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who really wants to learn this great craft.

  • The great food sustained us all and a great hands on day - creating a "layed" hedge.
