Free family forest school at Knights Hill Wood

A free workshop run by Nature Vibezzz is part of a one-and-a-half year community project to uncover and preserve the rich local history and natural heritage of Knights Hill Wood and Tivoli Park in West Norwood.

The wild edibles workshop will give participants an introduction to identifying common wild plants and their medicinal uses.

The project is funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and gives local people the opportunity to uncover and preserve the rich local history and natural heritage in West Norwood.

Knights Hill is a surviving fragment of the Great North Wood that once covered swathes of London in oak trees. The site is classed as a Local Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (Local SINC) and through project activities will be a valuable educational resource for local schools and groups. The woodland provides habitat for birds like woodpeckers, blackbirds, robins and wrens, and wild mammals like woodmice and shrews. Tivoli Park took a direct hit from a high-explosive bomb during the Blitz and Nature Vibezzz is hoping that local residents will share their memories of the two sites and the local area.

More information and project updates can be found at the project website.
