The Working Woodlands Centre

Working Woodlands

The Working Woodlands Centre, head office of The Greensand Trust located at the entrance of Maulden Wood, offers workshop and training facilities to support the management of Bedfordshire’s woodlands. It was created to help bring under-managed and under-utilised woodlands back into positive management.

The centre provides:

  • Start-up workshop facilities to support new and developing woodland-related businesses
  • Training courses for those owning, managing or working in woodlands, plus a range of other courses
  • Educational activities for school, college and adult and children’s education groups
  • Bookable space for meetings, events and activities

We hope this approach will help stimulate the rural economy associated with woodlands and wood products, creating and sustaining local jobs, enhancing biodiversity and leading to positive woodland management and carbon reduction.
