Ages 16 - 19
Do you love your planet, but think that your school, or college is not quite teaching you the stuff you really want to know; about climate change solutions, how to grow your own food, how to help wildlife and restore biodiversity? Would you like to learn some of this stuff, through practical hands-on learning, whilst spending time outdoors with others of a similar age and like minds...in a beautiful place?
Well if that's you, maybe we can help....
Youth Volunteer Programme
Come and help us build and develop a beautiful permaculture garden; for food, flowers, medicine and wildlife. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn permaculture design; by doing it!
Some of the things you will learn and do:
Designing a permaculture garden (step by step), Soil care, Composting, Vegetable growing, Tree Planting, Forest Gardening, Enhancing your wellbeing, Establishing a wildflower meadow, Regenerative agriculture, Wildflower and plant identification, gardening for wildlife, campfire cookery (including using an outdoor pizza oven). Deep ecology & permaculture; principles and philosophies
All volunteer sessions will be socially distanced and managed according to government Covid safety guidelines. If we go into a Tier 4 lockdown, some of the design work and learning can be done online.
Starting in January 2021, alternate Fridays, ongoing through the year.
Facilitator: Chris Smith.
