Current opportunity

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. As the organisation is new, the volunteer roles are quite informal. 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 Interested persons are asked to get in touch with Carol to discuss which role they are interested in taking on, or specific skills they have that may come in handy.
