Description

Birch Tree Garden is a new community project offering fresh fruit and vegetables to the food poor in the community. They also provide training days for locals within the Falkirk area, which will include gardening rural skills (preparing a fleece to wool/felt), wood crafts, willow weaving, basket weaving, coppicing, wellbeing, cookery, animal husbandry, admin skills, and basic stock keeping and bookkeeping.

There are various volunteer opportunities available, such as:

  • Decorating
  • Cleaning
  • Gardening
  • Litter-picking
  • Erecting fencing
  • Building poultry housing and enclosures
  • Helping in the shop/café area
  • Animal husbandry
