Welcome to Compass; a project navigating healthy, sustainable living!
*About the project:
In September 2020, medical charity, Camphill Wellbeing Trust, took on the former Waldorf school site at Craigton Road to transform it into a centre demonstrating practical solutions for healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
The mixed natural environment of Compass with its woodland and garden areas offers a wide range of opportunities including fruit, vegetable & flower growing, working in & enjoying the outdoors and observing & encouraging wildlife, including beekeeping. We use organic methods onsite and reuse/recycle as much as possible.
Compass has 4 buildings onsite which we are sustainably refurbishing with the support of various funding bodies. This also gives opportunities for those with suitable skills to help with the project.
*We need your help at Compass!
Compass offers a wide range of volunteering activities to suit a all sorts of interests and skills. Activities are generally outdoors so will vary according to the weather and the season.
*Volunteer support can often be related to:
• Gardening: preparing ground, planting, potting up, watering, weeding, harvesting
•Woodland care and monitoring: counting trees, pruning, collecting fallen branches, chipping wood, stacking logs
• Painting: sheds, fencing, plant/tree markers and signage
• Constructing: raised beds, compost bins, green pathways
• Equipment maintenance: cleaning and storing handheld tools
• Refurbishment: helping strip out buildings prior to refurbishment.
We hope in the future to offer further indoor activities: for example, upcycling furniture, candle making, food processing.
During your first session, one of our Compass team will go over Compass Health & Safety, explain more about the project and share the current tasks we need support with.
