Status and Schedule


Scheduled Work

During the Summer season we hold Tree Tending evenings, every week (either Monday or Wednesday) from Spring to Autumn. We usually work for an hour and a half and go to The Fox for a drink after. Everyone is welcome at our weekly, light orchard maintenance activity and social evening.

Please join our volunteer email list for weekly announcements of where and when we work.

Saturday Orchard Love is every second Saturday in the month . On these Saturdays we take on bigger tasks, like clearing new areas or supporting the rangers when they use the flail mower to clear an orchard.

Tree Tending evenings will be suspended for the dark season from the end of September 2021 until April 2022; please watch this space for announcements.

Please see our Locations page for location details.

Miscellaneous Dreams

Perhaps you did not have weeding or watering in mind. Perhaps you like the idea of re-creating scenes from historic postcards along the canal? Counting plant species? Researching local history? Documenting our efforts as photographer in residence?

Join the volunteer email or use our contact form to get in touch and let us know what you have in mind. We’ll gladly discuss everything, but we won’t promote your professional services.
