Autumn Water Festival 

Autumn Water Festival

Our seasonal celebration of water and wetlands is on Sunday 1st October. As with all our festivals we need a small army of volunteers to make sure things run smoothly. Please get in touch if you're happy to help out with crafts and activities, greeting visitors and selling tickets, or assisting in Poem Tree Cafe.

Are you handy?

We need some help to keep the Earth Trust Centre looking in tip top shape. The list of tasks is ever growing and we just don't have the people power to tick things off it! We're talking grounds maintenance, a spot of fixing things (e.g. the bike shed roof), and keeping the gardens and car parks looking neat, tidy and safe. If this sounds like your kind of thing, drop us a line to the usual address.

'Wood' you like to help us? Volunteer carpenter required!

Across the Earth Trust Farm we have 35 pedestrian gates, 75 vehicle gates, 16 benches and 22 information boards, as well as bird hides, boardwalks and countless other wooden structures. With over 150,000 visits to the site every year, they are well used! We’re looking for someone who’d be able to help us with carrying out ongoing repairs. Someone with woodworking skills and experience would be fantastic as well as a more general practical skills and a 'can do' attitude. We can provide space in our workshop, tools, any PPE needed and lots of cups of tea! The work would make a huge difference to the Trust and the visitors to our site. If you’re interested please get in touch.
