John Cunnan

John Cunnan has been a wood craftsman since 1972 when he taught woodcraft to the apprentices of Allan Chadwick, the originator of the Biodynamic French Intensive gardening method. Working with wood was integrated with forestry, wild crafting and food production as part of their curriculum. He founded the Round Valley Wood Wrights in 1979, ran the wood shop for the Covelo Garden Project while it was active and is currently teaching wood working at River Oak Charter School and the Calpella Waldorf School. John promotes forest fuel load reduction and the utilization of suppressed growth Douglas fir.
