This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
This workshop is designed for anyone interested in starting up their own community heat project, or just wanting to find out more about biomass.
The National Trust has teamed up with the Centre for Sustainable Energy, who will be running a workshop using their resources. Rangers, project managers, specialists and community group veterans will also share their experiences (both good and bad!) in a few short presentations followed by Q&As. 
There will also be chances during lunch to learn how to build using traditional techniques, with wardens running activities on shingle tiles and straw bail insulation, amongst others. Other useful stalls such as funders and consultants will be present during lunch, ready to answer any specific questions.
Because The National Trust believes that sustainable woodland management is an important part of biomass and should be properly considered, the afternoon will involve a walk and tour of their existing biomass and woodlands by National Trust wardens, covering important aspects of conservation with regards to biomass. The walk will last around 1 and a half hours.
