UK: Dude, National Beanpole Week is the schiz’

Organisers of National Beanpole Week 2009 April 25 – May 3 have called
on gardeners to support Britain’s coppiced woodlands by choosing
eco-friendly, locally-grown coppiced beanpoles instead of imported
bamboo canes.

By switching to British-grown coppiced beanpoles,
gardeners and growers will be doing their bit to support the
environment, wildlife, rural jobs, ancient skills and traditions – and
their beans.

“Traditionally managed coppiced woodlands are a really important part
of our countryside because they supply us with truly sustainable wood,
provide an incredibly rich wildlife habitat, support hundreds of rural
jobs and keep many ancient skills and traditions alive,” said Judy
Walker, Executive Director of the Small Woods Association – the
charity organising National Beanpole Week.

“Britain lost 90% of its coppiced woodland during the 20th century – and to protect what remains, we need to support the coppice workers who manage these woods by buying their excellent eco-friendly coppiced beanpoles,” she added. This appeal was made alongside the announcement that this year’s
National Beanpole Week will run from 25 April until 3 May.

National Beanpole Week 2009 will celebrate Britain’s coppiced woodlands, the animals and plants that live in them and the coppice workers who look
after them. Special events will be held nationwide, from coppice wood
gardening workshops to family beanpole festivals.
