VOLUNTEERING

On [Y]our Project:

In Your
Community

CLOSE TO HOME

Within your community project benefit from volunteering your time to develop your basic skills, raise your confidence, work within a team, enhance your understanding of nature and the environment and the building of structures.

With each project we take on, there will be an opportunity for you to get involved. This will enable your community project to go ahead faster, and save costs hiring general labour. You will receive daily inductions, tasks and supervision and assigned to a specific team. All power tools will require induction training, even if you’re a seasoned pro.

Volunteer opportunities require a commitment to turn up when you say you will, and put in an effort each day on site. Lunch and beverages will usually be available.

EXPERT LED COURSES, FOR ANY LEVEL

[Y]our projects are designed and delivered using as many natural building materials as possible. Some of these materials are so rarely used in everyday conventional construction that there are very little in the number of trades using the materials properly, if at all.

We bring in the top most experts in the natural building industry to run courses on these materials and methods of construction for both the everyday person keen to have a go, to the self-build enthusiast, to the established tradesperson.

SPECIFIC COURSES FOR SPECIFIC PEOPLE

We are especially keen to reach out to certain groups, and from time to time we put on a specific course aimed at certain people. From Women in Construction, to Architecture Students, to working with Cared For People and those who are hard to reach, we put on specific workshops for specific groups, at the discretion of our clients. These workshops vary from architectural and ecological design issues, to the best way to use a saw. They are designed for the group in mind and provide a safe space to learn something new.
