About the Event
Robin Walter's book 'Living with Trees' has been described as a guide on how we can best live with and value our trees, from individual specimens to vast forests, as well as celebrating the many people and organisations working to make a positive difference. A Common Ground handbook, it is a successor to the early books - In a Nutshell, Community Orchards Handbook and the anthology Arboreal. Common Ground is a charity based in west Dorset which plays a unique role linking nature and culture, believing that community involvement and celebration is the best starting point for improving our relationship with the natural world. Founded in 1983, its many achievements include Apple Day, England in Particular and the research for Richard Mabey’s Flora Britannica.
Robin is a writer, forester, arborist, environmental campaigner and musician well known in Shaftesbury. He worked as a woodland officer for the Woodland Trust for many years and contributed to Arboreal, Little Toller’s 2016 anthology of woodland writing.
