Arbeit

Group 1 will be an integral part of the team helping to build and set up the Green & Away site, before helping to run the first event of the summer. Work will include - erecting tents, marquees, yurts, domes and other structures; building compost toilets; building & maintaining site infrastructure e.g. plumbing & electricity - solar/wind energy; managing the transport & logistics of equipment; keeping our wood-powered showers hot; maintaining our organically grown kitchen garden; baking bread and cooking wholesome, vegetarian, organic, and locally sourced food in our kitchen; 'housekeeping' of the rental accommodation for our participants; art installations and practical workshops e.g. woodwork, leather work, pewter casting; foraging for plants and flowers; enjoying music and laughter in the Honking Goose, our fully licensed, volunteer-built bar. Volunteers work in teams within a group of approx 35-50 people. When we host an event, up to 200 people can be on site. During the set-up phase a working day usually begins at 9am with a short meeting to discuss the tasks for the day, and finish around 5-6pm, with lunch and regular tea and cake breaks. During conferences the tasks have very different working hours. For example some people will be up early every day to light fires for the showers, the kitchen has 2 different shift times - whereas the bar workers usually finish late at night, so will start much later in the day too!

Arbeit

The work involves helping with the preparation of the festival, including changing an area of the grounds into a huge campsite with accommodation for the young people in around 600 tents, which you will help to put up and tag (many are pop-up tents). You’ll also be organising workshop areas, marking out activity areas, preparing the grounds (cutting back trees, litter picking etc.), as well as helping the organisers with paperwork, i.e. stapling the information packs and putting all paperwork in and labelling bags. There will also be lifting and carrying as the food for the weekend will arrive and need to be stored. Volunteers will also be involved in some food preparation to make sure that young people have packed lunches. Then during the festival weekend itself, you will be needed to help keep the dining room flowing and clean, assist with children’s’ harnesses and helmets on activities, take drinks and food round to the staff, as well as directing car parking and general marshalling of the event. The YMCA hold a fireworks display, have a disco, fairground rides as well as our own activities, and the young people get a chance to just be themselves, without having to explain what they do, they can just be children again for the weekend.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will either be camping in yurts and sleeping on camp beds, or staying in one of our staff/volunteer dorm rooms. There is some bedding provided but please bring a sleeping bag for extra warmth. Three meals a day will be will be provided in the canteen and there are toilet and shower facilities and a washing machine.

Arbeit

Journey back to the seventeenth century this summer by joining a living-history camp at Grayhill Farm in south-east Wales. The camp covers two weeks and will involve a range of heritage craft and construction activities. Participants will work alongside other volunteers and develop their skills and knowledge of historic and sustainable building and farming techniques.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

This is an authentic historical experience, and as such facilities are very basic; you will be living in a barn and cooking will be done over open fires. There are no modern facilities on site, so no electricity or piped water, and hot water is limited. There are modern sustainable compost toilets but showers will be taken off site at the local swimming pool, and there is also a river which you can bathe in and when the weather is nice we may have improvised showers on site. We realise that these conditions can seem intimidating to many people, but we will assure you that it is not as scary as it seems. The art of living simply is often lost but we strive to create a humble, peaceful place full of natures wonders in which you can have a complete break from reality. Who knows... you might never want to leave! There is no clothes washing facility at the accommodation so we encourage you to bring a suitable amount of clothing with you, but the host can arrange for you to wash your clothes if you require it. There will be chance to use WIFI during the free time of the project but volunteers should not expect to be able to use the internet on the project site.

Lage und Freizeit

The historic farm is situated in an area of natural beauty and there is plenty to do and see in the vicinity. There will be a diverse range of people involved in the project and they enjoy spending evenings sharing meals, stories and music around the campfire. Trips to the nearby town for showers and use of WIFI etc. will be arranged regularly and the host will try to accommodate the interests of the volunteers. The project is close to train and bus terminals and you can easily access nearby small towns and villages, and the larger cities of Newport, Cardiff, Bath and Bristol are also within 1 hr by train.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Grayhill Historical Farm was bought by the Historical Land Group Trust and renovation of the entire 15.5 acre site to its late 16th early 17th century condition began in 1987. There are 30 fields in the 15 acres which have been returned to their historical land uses, hay meadows, pasture, woodland, arable, gardens and orchards. Ten collapsed period buildings have been restored so far, from Longhouses to pig sties. Much of the 3 miles of field boundaries have been reinstated along with ponds and wells. The site provides the ideal background for film shoots and educational courses as well as the production of period foodstuffs. The BBC historical documentary TV series 'Tales from the Green Valley' was set here. See more at http://www.stuart-hmaltd.com/green_valley_farm.php

Arbeit

We'll be creating a local nature reserve in Kilmarnock, a short walk every morning from Dean Castle. We'll do a variety of practical conservation tasks in the two weeks, including path work and planting, to make a haven for wildlife and people. We’ll also be creating a wildflower meadow to benefit bees, butterflies and birds and maintaining wildlife hedges and woodland at the new nature reserve as well as helping out at the Park. Local volunteers will be joining in to help out for a couple of days as well.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You'll be housed at the brand new residential centre in the country park just along the main drive from the castle. There will be four to a room in bunk beds and no need for sleeping bags! There's a kitchen with plenty of cooking equipment for you to use to cook up a tasty meal at the end of the day to use at the centre as well as a recreational space to hang out in the evenings and weekends. You'll all work together to cook and clean as a team and have a chance to share inter-cultural meals and experiences.

Lage und Freizeit

Dean Castle Country Park is in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire and you may recognise it from the famous Outlander series as Beaufort Castle! There are local pubs and cafes nearby as well as a cinema in Kilmarnock. For weekend trips, there are plenty of tourist attractions within easy reach of Kilmarnock including Loch Lomond, Isle of Arran, Glasgow, Edinburgh or the beautiful beaches of Troon and Ayr. You could try a ceilidh (fun folk dancing for everyone!) or last year we also brought a dance group in to do folk dancing with the volunteers.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Dean Castle Country Park has over 80 hectares of countryside and yet is set in the heart of Kilmarnock as a free resource for the whole community. The Country Park boasts beautiful woodland walks, an adventure play area, urban farm, visitor centre, tearoom, shop and a fantastic 14th century castle. With scenic paths and trails to explore, the park is a great place to get away from the stresses of everyday life and see some fantastic wildlife. Volunteers are vital to the Park and help us improve the Park for wildlife and make it a better place for the community.

Arbeit

WORK: Needless to say, in order for the Festival to be a life-enhancing and indeed for some a life-transforming experience, much hard work is required. From the day we arrive in an empty field with a small vanguard, our numbers gradually swell until we have around eight hundred volunteers welcoming the two thousand visitors. The set-up crew erect the structures that will act as kitchens and venues. They establish the infrastructure such as plumbing, compost toilets, showers and saunas. They make the site beautiful and safe with flags, bunting, paths, fences and lighting. Then during the Festival we have stewards to welcome and guide festival goers, to manage parking and traffic and to attend to people's well-being. Toilet wizards maintain the compost toilets. A team of recyclers sorts materials so as to minimize landfill. The café crew feed volunteers and festival goers alike. The site crew look after the infrastructure, tents, water etc. During the setup phase volunteers will get one day off and during the festival two or three days either as full days or half days, depending on the needs of the particular area. VAP volunteers will be invited to work in a number of areas before and during the festival for example: the Healing area, the Buddhafield cafe, site crew, recycling and ‘toilet wizards’ décor. During the Festival the volunteers will have work shifts, but will also have time to enjoy the huge variety of events taking place and facilities available as outlined above. Volunteers are asked to attend daily morning meetings, the exact time depending on what area of work they choose to join. The work is very team-based. The whole enterprise runs on goodwill, awareness of each others’ needs, good communication and mutual support. During set-up and take-down there will be organised events around Buddhist themes, attendance at which is completely voluntary. There are generally also alternatives such as spontaneous musical gatherings, often around a fire.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

ACCOMMODATION and FOOD: If possible volunteers should provide their own tents, however if necessary Buddhafield may be able to provide a shared canvas structure (e.g. a geodesic dome) as an on-site communal camping accommodation. However this may be needed for workshops during the day, especially during the Festival itself. Volunteers should bring their own sleeping gear such as sleeping bag and sleeping mat. Buddhafield will provide food (mainly vegan) and hot drinks are available throughout the day. Showers and toilet facilities are outdoors and though cleaner and better cared for than other festivals they are outdoors and basic.

Lage und Freizeit

TRAVEL TO BUDDHAFIELD: The Festival site is in remote countryside, with only two buses per day going near the site. A member of the Buddhafield team will meet people at the train station and help them get to the site. If you want to travel with a team member it is important that you arrive at Taunton train station by 4.30pm on the 4th where we will meet! Trains: The nearest station is Taunton. Journeys take about 2 hours from London or Birmingham, 1 hour from Bristol and 30 minutes from Exeter. Book via Coaches: Taunton is about 4 hours from London and 1 hour from Bristol. National Express run regular services to Taunton. See www.nationalexpress.com. Local transport: Once in Taunton there are two buses per day which can drop you within 10 minutes walk of the Festival site. The bus stops are about 15 minutes walk from Taunton station and five minutes from the coach station.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

BACKGROUND: Buddhafield (www.buddhafield.com ) is an English Buddhist collective that is part of the international Buddhist movement, the Triratna Buddhist Community (http://thebuddhistcentre.com). Buddhafield emerged out of the coming together of Buddhism and ecological awareness in the 1990s. Buddhafield is inspired by the ideal of living and working more simply and kindly in a community informed by awareness of our interconnections with each other and with nature. We run a programme of camping activities in the South West of England and own two beautiful pieces of land, which we are committed to managing sustainably and which we use for several events each year (not the Festival itself). We are perhaps best known for organising the much-loved Buddhafield Festival , now in its 18th year, and for the Buddhafield Café, which provides vegan food at festivals like the Glastonbury Festival. THE FESTIVAL: The Buddhafield Festival is held over a period of five days, on a beautiful site in the Blackdown Hills, in Somerset, England. The event brings together around three thousand people for a sharing and celebration of alternative social, cultural, political and spiritual values. The mix of activities around Buddhist, environmental, healing and social change themes together with general festival attractions such as singing, dance, yoga, drumming, live music, comedy, craftwork, chai cafes, saunas, hot tubs and a huge range of activities for children, attracts a wide range of festival goers. The feedback we get is that for many the event is a reminder that a more positive and kind alternative to conventional competitive and environmentally damaging ways of living is possible. In keeping with the Festival's Buddhist ethos the event is a drug and alcohol-free zone. Here is a brief vimeo clip of the festival – https://vimeo.com/251664932 enter the code Dharma2

The volunteers will work on gardening, horticulture, hard landscaping, and creative tasks. The work may change depending on the weather and the children who are assisting each day; we ask that volunteers are ready to work hard, be flexible and willing to help with any of the tasks which are practical in nature. In week 1 the children will spend some time working with the volunteers and then in the second week the school will be closed and only accessible to the volunteers who will continue work in the garden areas.

The accommodation is basic but adequate; volunteers will sleep on the floor in the community room at the school. There are toilets and cooking facilities at the school. There is no shower at the school so volunteers will be using showers with host families and will be able to access them every 2 – 3 days. Please bring a sleeping bag and roll mat. The community room is used at 9am for the school so volunteers must be prepared to tidy their things away in the morning. However in the second week the volunteers will be able to access the appropriate rooms they need due to the school being closed.

Arbeit

Volunteers will be an integral part of the team helping to run some of the final events of the summer, before working on the take down of the Green & Away site. Work will include – de-constructing and packing away tents, marquees, yurts, domes and other structures; decommissioning compost toilets; maintaining and packing site infrastructure e.g. plumbing & electricity - solar/wind energy; managing the transport & logistics of equipment; keeping our wood-powered showers hot; maintaining our organically grown kitchen garden; baking bread and cooking wholesome, vegetarian, organic, and locally sourced food in our kitchen; 'housekeeping' of the rental accommodation for our participants; art installations and practical workshops e.g. woodwork, leather work, foraging for plants and flowers; enjoying music and laughter in the Honking Goose, our fully licensed, volunteer-built bar. Volunteers work in teams within a group of approx. 35-50 people. When we host an event, up to 200 people can be on site. During the take down phase our working days usually start at 9am with a short meeting to discuss the tasks for the day, and finish around 5-6pm, with lunch and regular tea and cake breaks. During conferences the tasks have very different working hours. For example some people will be up early every day to light fires for the showers, the kitchen has 2 different shift times - whereas the bar workers usually finish late at night, so will start much later in the day too!

Volunteers live in tents on site, and toilet and shower facilities are provided. IT RAINS IN ENGLAND IN THE SUMMER – Be prepared! Volunteers MUST bring: Waterproof coat and trousers, strong boots, warm clothing, sleeping bag, camping mattress. We also ask volunteers to bring their own tent if possible.

Special dietary requirements can be provided for.
