Current opportunity

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.
