Willow Fencing Panels

The Gover Valley Forest project wanted to learn how to make willow fencing panels, or “hurdles” (so called because the original use for this portable fencing system was for shepherds to pen in sheep on the hills overnight). They came along for a 1-day workshop to learn my basic hurdle pattern.

These beautiful finished panels are ideal for vegetable garden plots as they provide shelter and allow a certain amount of air through rather than creating a solid barrier.
