Steward Community Woodland is founded in 2000 as a co-operative based on permaculture and vegan principles, combining woodland conservation management techniques with sustainable living. Granted five years’ temporary planning permission in 2002 after two appeals, and renewed in 2009 following a further appeal.  Currently 12 adults and 9 children. Electrical energy is sourced from solar cells and a water turbine.  Coppiced wood is used for cooking and heating. Income is derived from the woodland, running courses and local environmental, community and care work. Children are home-educated and organic food is grown.
