Volunteer - Jupiter Wood Recycling Project

  • VO86716


Description

We're looking for local volunteers to come and help at our Jupiter Wood Recycling Project where we're building: homes for nature, raised beds, benches and other items out of recycled wood for community projects.

In our polytunnel workshop we are transforming recycled and donated timber into usable items for community projects. We're creating bird boxes, hedgehog homes, raised beds for growing vegetables, benches, shelters, mud kitchens, desks, shelves and many more.

We will provide training and support but some skills in using tools and/or woodwork would be desirable.

All sessions are running with reduced numbers and with COVID safety measures in place due to current guidelines.

Speak to us in advance to find out what our volunteers are currently doing, how to take part and to book your space.

Organisation aims and objectives

Every day, The Conservation Volunteers (or TCV as we’re known) works across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone. We do this by connecting people and green spaces to deliver lasting outcomes for both. We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to promote social cohesion, combat loneliness or enhance employment prospects, TCV works together with communities to deliver practical solutions to the real-life challenges they face. For over sixty years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all. Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.
