Evolving the Forest at Dartington Hall


This is the first international symposium about the forest and how we live with trees. Evolving the Forest will be held at Dartington Hall in Devon this year.

I will be showcasing my new poem, 'The Guardians of Dartington', placed among four of the most striking Spanish Chestnuts.

I am very lucky to have this opportunity; thank you to The Dartington Hall Trust and to the Symposium - Evolving the Forest. Also thanks to Tom Jolliffe for the wonderful photo of these ancient chestnuts.

We have a video of my poem 'Beech Book' for you to watch here; with the birds providing an enchanting soundtrack.
