The Charcoal Burners
Weekend In The Woods (23rd & 24th June 2012)
A unique two-day fundraising Weekend in the Woods in aid of a new outdoor classroom and community building at Harting Primary School in South Harting, near Petersfield.
At the heart of the event will be a ONE TIME opportunity to view a stunning round timber-frame eco-woodland house in Elsted - home to local charcoal producer Chris Wall-Palmer and his family, wife Lucy and four children.

Fernhurst Furnace Open Days (September 2009 & 2010)
We had a large display describing the process of making charcoal, and how
different woods produce charcoal with varying qualities. Information about
coppicing, forest management, and the conservation of British wildlife and ecology.
Chris did a demonstration charcoal burn, which was very popular with the crowd. Of course we also brought bags of our own 'Hot Stuff' charcoal to sell, which disappeared like hotcakes!
