To join us please contact: 01570 493358 / email@example.com
The current volunteer programme is part of our ‘Sowing Seeds, Sharing Skills’ project, kindly supported by WCVA’s ‘Volunteering in Wales’ Fund and the Big Lottery Fund’s ‘Awards for All’ programme.
All our volunteering days are supervised by our Activity Leader.
Tasks vary according to season and may include woodland management, wildlife gardening, pruning shrubs & trees, checking bird and dormouse boxes, maintaining paths & boardwalks – and various other jobs around the 40 acre site.
We will be holding volunteer days at least twice a month and we will try to vary them with some weekdays and some weekends to enable more people to take part.
Volunteer days tend to start at 10am and finish around 4pm (unless stated otherwise), though you are welcome to join us for half a day if you are pressed for time!
Details subject to change so please phone or email first to check.
Don’t worry if you haven’t any previous experience as we’ll provide all the guidance and tools you need.
Please bring outdoor clothing and packed lunch. Drinks and cake are provided. Lift shares can be arranged on request.
Other volunteering opportunities are sometimes available depending on your skills. Please get in touch if you are interested.
