(Also fits teams) The Sanctuary Project keeps getting bigger by the day and many hands make light work. It is not "just" a conservation project, it is a location for outdoor Environmental Education work as well. We have been hosting, pre- school , Primary School. PolyTech students , Sea Scouts , Girl Guides & Gardening groups, and are planning to have a Public Open Day "Sandwiches in the Sanctuary" in November.

There are many different roles available for volunteers at the Sanctuary:
  • Help propagate native plants to supply the sanctuary and other community environmental enhancement projects.
  • Maintain and protect existing plantings by weeding, tree releasing and pest plant control. 
  • Mowing, Line Trimming etc. 
  • Assist with fitting out a container being converted into an information / education centre & lunch room for volunteers.

On site training in seed & cutting plant propagation. Gloves and tools provided.
