Make Action Happen
Autumn 2021 we are starting an exciting new volunteering programme. Please get in touch!
and Do Something…..
COP 26 meeting is coming up in November 2021 but this is what we are doing locally for climate action!
Help us create an example of what we should be doing in woodland and fields near you. To grow our food, fuel and materials to replace coal, oil and gas.
Learn how to use hand tools: axes, scythes, billhooks etc to produce Hazel Coppice, basketry willow plantation, Hornbeam Pollards and Timber trees. To produce materials which are an alternative to plastic and composite materials which won’t naturally breakdown.
Learn how to grow veg and fruit and set up carbon negative no dig horticulture on a field scale.
Learn how to work in the field using a portable kit which can move and set up camp elsewhere.
Volunteering on Broad Park, Murton.
The charity has taken on a field in Murton to demonstrate carbon negative food growing. More Info: Carbon Negative Food Growing
At present we need volunteers to join us in preparing the land. We are working on the field infrastructure, planting fruit trees, clearing bramble and general ground work.
Volunteering on Mansel Green, Bishopston Swansea
Mansel Green is a 2 hectare site in Bishopston village. Activities change with the season and include controlling Bracken and Japanese Knot weed using Austrian Scythes, footpath improvement, coppicing, tree planting, hedgerow restoration.
