About Stroud Woodland Co-op

The Co-operative is the proud owner of Folly Wood which we bought as a community.  The share holders manage this 3 acre woodland near Stroud which overlooks the Slad valley. 

Stroud Woodland Co-op was set up as an Industrial and Provident Society. This means we are legally bound to carry out our business for the benefit of the community. This includes:

  • To realise the environmental, biological, landscape, economic, social, cultural, educational and recreational value of woodland ecosystems in and around Stroud as a resource for a sustainable community; and
  • To acquire, hold, steward, create, and manage woodland, land and property sustainably in trust for biodiversity, social enterprise, access and community benefit for present and future generations.
