Meadow Orchard Site Management training

Meadow Orchard Site Management training
Sat 23rd Feb, 2-4pm

The Meadow Orchard Project aims to hold regular volunteer workdays on a Saturday to maintain and develop the site. The project always needs more people to help on a regular basis with supervising volunteers and managing the site tasks. We are offering a training session for people who would like to commit more regularly to helping out. The volunteer workdays are a relaxed, social and fun occasion with a shared lunch and often pub visit at end of the day. The volunteers get a lot out of the day to enjoy being in beautiful nature, socialise and meet others, to learn new skills/knowledge and be physically active in the fresh outdoors.

The session will cover:

understanding the features and layout of the site, including garden, orchard, wildlife areas and wildlife management plan

brief introduction to permaculture philosophy and principles and how they are being implemented

getting familiar with ongoing site management tasks, resources and equipment available etc

intro to garden management, including planting plan and perennial planting

safe tool use and care

health and safety

planning work tasks for the year and future projects

I hope you will be able to join us, especially if you have been coming to volunteer a few times and want to get more involved.
