UPDATE: During the Covid-19 virus outbreak we've made changes to how we're running our volunteer events & anyone visiting local green spaces should follow all local and national government advice.

Weekend Community Orchard Planting

Event Details

Friends of Berrylands Nature Reserve will be running another of our regular monthly weekend community conservation volunteer days on Saturday 11th of January from 10am – 2pm.

This month we will be focusing primarily on planting our brand new community orchard in Berrylands Park, and are delighted to be joined by the Environment Trust and their team of Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteers to help us out.

We will be meeting outside Berrylands Scouts Hut on Stirling Walk, as usual, for an intro briefing, before starting work.
Don’t worry if you can’t join us for the whole session, even an hour or two would be very gratefully appreciated.

We will provide all the tools, so all you need is weather appropriate clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty, and some sturdy footwear.
Also if you have your own gardening gloves feel free to bring those along too.
We will have a supply of biscuits and warm drinks to keep people going, buy feel free to bring you own lunch or a snack as well if you want to.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome, but we do ask that those under 14 are accompanied by an adult. Those aged 14-18 may volunteer alone, with parental consent forms to be completed on the day.

If you have any questions about the session, or volunteering with the friends group in general then please drop us an email to: berrylandsnr@gmail.com
