Welcome to the Logs4Labour Home page

Wherever you see thl4llogosmallis logo, you know you are in touch with the community Wood-fuel scheme based around Haslemere and Chiddingfold. Supported by Chiddgreen, The National Trust at Swan Barn Farm and Transition Haslemere, we aim to bring local woodlands back into sustainable management, and produce renewable fuel in the form of logs – for  wood-burners. Open to all, not-for-profit, lots of  fun.

NEWS for 2016-17

New! Yeoman roles for regulars to help build a skills base and pass on knowledge and methods to new people.

All this is made possible through generous support from our friends. If you have skills you are happy to share, or can help with renovating and maintaining our hand-tools, contact us.

Many Thanks to Nikki Barton, Independent Surrey County Council Councillor for Haslemere, who last year approved a £300 grant to help Logs4Labour purchase tools

 A Community Woodfuel scheme in Woodlands around Haslemere and Chiddingfold

Logs 4 Labour is the umbrella coordinating body, organised by  Chiddgreen (CG), with support from Transition Haslemere (TH) and the National Trust at Swan Barn Farm (SBF).
The scheme is event based, with organised days in the woods. Jane Devlin is the main co-ordinator. Anyone can help and volunteer!
The woods are marked on this map ( Google maps, opens in a new window.)
There is no membership fee. Events are free and open to all, unless otherwise mentioned in the event particulars.
Participation by volunteering labour in the woods is essential to get wood – this differentiates Logs 4 Labour from a firewood business.
Logs are collected at the end of events  – a small donation is requested to keep the scheme going – Costs include insurance, tool maintenance and refreshments.
A carload should be about £10. Big cars more, please.

Marketing

TH and CG market the scheme and events. Interested people are added to a Logs 4 Labour mailing list, a subset of the TH mailing
list.  TH and CG publicise Logs 4 Labour on their websites, at events and farmers market stall.
