We get together to carry out various tasks in the Scarborough area such as tree planting,
coppicing, dry stone walling, hedge planting, steps, walkways, litter picks, meadow planting, charcoal burning, ditch clearing. if you have a task that you would like done by the volunteers we do not charge but we do encourage contributions from land managers ., As guide . £5 per person per day & £10 fuel for each vehicle when we travel out of town. not a huge amount but we all have costs and the volunteers a worth it .
You might be thinking ” thats not for me”and we understand but before you go, let me tell you what we offer as a group.
- An excellent pathway into employment, not everyone that comes out with us is looking for a job but those that are give themselves a wonderful opportunity to create a fantastic CV .
- We offer both formal and informal training (dry stone walling,hedge laying,chainsaw use, charcoal burning, footpath maintenance ……………
- To socialise
- family days
- The volunteers lease (99years) 17 acres of land from the Woodland Trust known as Raincliffe Meadow, this is an amazing opportunity to become involved with its management and development.
