In this workshop Chris Poundwhite guides us through the ash woods of North Kent to connect with the ash that remains.

The Song of the Ash
Ash trees are dying, and our landscape is changing as a result.
This ecopoetry workshop faces that reality head on, and asks how we respond to the situation. One answer is to connect with what remains.
After a guided walk through ash woodland, we will work on creating poems that explore ash tree ecology and respond to the trees in a direct, sensory way.
In doing so, we will enhance our individual relationships to ash trees, which make up such a huge part of the landscapes that surround us, and which may soon be gone.
This is the first in a series of ecopoetry workshops that will take place as part of The Ash Project.
