Greetings from all at Blackbark,
We’ve finally worked out our work schedule for the coming season and are inviting volunteers to come and get stuck in with us!
Our work weeks are Monday to Friday and will begin on Oct 22nd, Oct 29th, Nov 19th, Nov 26th, Dec 10th, Jan 28th, Feb 18th, Feb 25th, Mar 18th and Mar 25th.
You can expect hard work, filthy Pennine weather, and a hard floor to sleep on.
You can also expect lovely woodlands to play in, great company, skill sharing, hot food, hot showers and beer.
Last season was amazing and many volunteers kept coming back! If you’re not worried about moving heavy things around in the mud and rain we can almost guarantee you a fantastic time. We’ll be revisiting all the woods we worked last year and starting in at least one new one. We’ve also got exciting new products to make with all that brash!
You will need – sleeping bag and roll mat – we do have some extra blankets and things to keep you warm. Places are limited to available spaces in vehicles so if you are coming in a vehicle please let us know and if you have any spare seats. Please let us know if you are qualified to use chainsaws too, as this will effect the work program.
There is no cost to you. Donations towards food and accommodation at Nutclough Housing co-op would be welcomed, but not expected.
Email (contact<at>blackbark.co.uk) or phone Keith (07733 784795) for more info or to book your place.
Look forward to seeing you out in the woods.
Keith and all at Blackbark.
