Get on our land!
Volunteer day is an important part of the social fabric of the farm, where a mix of regular, seasonal and occasional, young and older people come and get involved – working alongside each other on the land.
We do get a lot of work done but the day is predominantly about community – the working together on the land is the vessel. It is a time to meet others, contribute to and be a part of this project, whilst connecting with nature and the grounding work that the seasons dictate.
We have fun, we take enjoyment in the always changing mix of people, we have irreverent (sometimes irrelevant) conversations over tea break. And who knows, you might even learn something.
Every Thursday 9 – 4pm (except the one between Christmas and New Year). Arrive for 9am if you can, but come later if you can’t. Stay until 4:30pm or leave earlier if you like.
If you’d like to come, just drop us a line so we can expect you.
What to expect
Volunteer day is open to all regardless of age, experience, background. We try to foster an inclusive environment, where diversity is welcomed, and we just ask that respect is shown towards others, and towards the farm itself.
You will work alongside some of our core team and we will generally have planned at leat a couple of different activities, and we are always willing to find a task that suits your needs.
We provide hot drinks when we stop for break mid-morning, and a home cooked lunch for everyone to share at 1pm. If there is any uncollected veg from the week’s CSA shares we will share it out between volunteers at the end of the day.
We provide all tools and equipment required, as well as basic training where required, please do just wear appropriate clothing for the season and the weather. If you do have a pair of gardening gloves that you like to wear, please do bring along.
As a result of being a small team, we are not able to provide specific care or support for those with additional needs, however we are more than willing to welcome such people alongside a carer. The same goes for children, who are very welcome to come with a parent or carer. In such instances, and in all others, we are very happy to discuss with you what tasks may best suit your needs, and generally help you fit in and find your place here.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions about volunteering and let us know you’re coming by dropping us an email below. See you on Thursday!
