🌱Sunday 15th September 2-3pm Volunteer with us.
Meeting for anyone interested in being involved or more involved in the Meadow Orchard Project (no obligation).
Are you interested in volunteering at the Meadow Orchard or have you been volunteering and are now interested in site leading. Would you like to be involved in how we move forward as a project?

🌱The Meadow Orchard has no paid worker. Everything we do is organised by volunteers. Some volunteers are called site-leaders, these people take responsibility to open the site on Saturdays and sometimes other times. No specialist knowledge is required for this. Usually someone would come first as a volunteer. If they are interested in site leading they will be trained and then start with someone experienced. This is a particularly useful way of helping as it allows other people to come and get involved.Support is offered for as long as necessary. From time to time we urgently need new site leaders because volunteers are resting or have moved away.
