Volunteer Fridays

From Friday 10th February, the Down To Earth Foundation, based at the Eco Park, will be running weekly Volunteer sessions.

Aimed at adults, these sessions offer unique hands-on learning opportunities, and training in a variety of practical, and sustainable land-based skills.

In February we’ll be kicking things off with two brilliant growing projects:

Plot to Plate
Join us in creating a new, flourishing allotment for the Eco Park, which will supply the café with year-round fresh, organic vegetables, herbs and edible flowers. Includes guidance in soil preparation, plot planning and planting.

The Wonders of Willow
Learn about the cultivation and management of Willow, with hands on teaching including ground preparation, growing, harvesting and how to work with it as both a building and contemporary craft material.

We ask that you commit to a full morning on site (9am to 1pm). All participants are welcome to join us for a hot and wholesome Vegetarian lunch in the Cantina afterwards.
