Biographical Info

Sylva Foundation is a national environmental charity, based in Long Wittenham. It is transforming the old agricultural buildings and surrounding landscape, on the site formerly known as College Farm, by developing the Sylva Wood Centre. This houses a range of wood-related businesses, including start-up businesses in a number of ‘incubation’ units, with links to Oxford City College. Some 13 businesses now operate from the Sylva Wood Centre including furniture and cabinetmakers, sculptor, film maker and an upholsterer. Plans are underway to provide woodworking courses.

In winter 2016 both a new Community Orchard and a ‘Future Forest’ will be planted on surrounding land, with the help of the local community, who have an opportunity to take out shares in the orchard or sponsor plots of the forest. The charity will be hosting the first Apple Day in October 2016. It opens the doors to the Wood Centre every May during Oxfordshire Artweeks.
