At the moment our volunteers are mostly Evie’s friends and family who help with childcare, transport and DIY jobs. We couldn’t do it without them!

Volunteering opportunities are a great way to learn new skills, extend your knowledge about sustainable living meet new people, and have fun.

No matter what skills and experience you have, we would love for you to join us.

If you would like to know more about our current volunteering opportunities, please do pop us a message and we will get back to you.
