Arbeit

Volunteers 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; helping to build & maintain site infrastructure e.g. plumbing & electricity - solar 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; foraging for plants and flowers; enjoying music and laughter in the Honking Goose, our fully licensed 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 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

Volunteers will be involved in all aspects of vegetable and fruit growing: planting, weeding and harvesting vegetables and picking fruit, including soft fruit e.g. berries. 60 different vegetables are grown, some in polytunnels, so work can continue even if it is raining. There could possibly also be some light construction work.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

In tents (please bring your own, plus a sleeping bag and rollmat) at the centre of the farm. Food will be healthy and home-made – 2 people will have the afternoon off from farm work to cook for the group each day. There are several covered spaces for the group to use to socialise and relax. Vegetarian diets can be catered for.

Lage und Freizeit

LOCATION: Canalside is 3 kms east of the town of Leamington Spa. It is a pleasant 40 minute walk along the canal to the town. Bicycles are available to borrow. LEISURE: There will be two days off (but not on Saturdays which are “collection days” when many local people gather at the farm). Nearby tourist attractions include the world-famous Warwick Castle and Stratford on Avon (Shakespeare’s birthplace), and the major cities of Coventry, Birmingham and Oxford are all close by. On Sunday 16 June there is a possibility to visit the Leamington Peace Festival.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Canalside Community Food is a Community Supported Agriculture scheme for people in the surrounding area. It provides weekly, organic, produce shares, containing vegetables all year, and fruit when in season, in a range of sizes suitable for different households. “Canalside Community Food is run by a small but very committed group of people, the original core of whom have been meeting since the Summer 2005. We are a diverse group, ranging from farmers to organic researchers to teachers, but what we do all share are strong beliefs in local food and community empowerment, and in particular what we are doing through our work at Canalside.” Local consumers become members and many come as part-time volunteers to the farm so there will be plenty of opportunity for the volunteers to meet local people.

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, and there may be some help needed cleaning and preparing accommodation to the young people. 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 provided in the canteen and there are toilet and shower facilities and a washing machine.

Arbeit

The camp covers two weeks and involves starting the process for restoration of some old buildings. this will involve removing the old thatch roof and moving new roof beams and timbers and putting them in place. If time the group may start to lay stone tiles on the roof. Volunteers will have a chance to work alongside other volunteers and develop their skills and knowledge of historic and sustainable building techniques.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

This is an authentic historical experience, and as such facilities are very basic. There are no modern facilities on site, so no electricity or piped water - all water comes from a well. Toilets are external compostable & a bucket of water is kept with Dettol mixed in to kill any germs for washing hands. At the entrance of the main building where food is cooked, eaten and stored, there is another bucket of water with Dettol, hand wash, hand sanitizer and nail brushes. Showers will be taken off site at the local swimming pool. For the accommodation, it will be with sharing tents: 4 cone tents that can sleep 2-4 people each and one large tent that can sleep 6. Tents generally divided by gender, however if there are friends or those who don’t mind sharing gender happy with that. Cooking will be done over open fires by a member of staff on the project. Volunteers are invited to bring some recipes from home to share. If the volunteers want more / different food they can have a trip to a local shop. They can easily store anything they bring with in their tents. There are no clothes washing facility 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 is limited phone signal at the farm and nowhere to charge phones, so please ensure volunteers are ready for this. 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 nature's wonders in which you can have a complete break from reality. Who knows... you might never want to leave!

Lage und Freizeit

Arbeit

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 three 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 days either as full days or half days, depending on the needs of the particular teams. 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, welcome and departure teams. 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

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 vegan food and hot drinks and snacks 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 4.45pm on the 9th where we will meet you at the upper exit by platform 2! Trains: The nearest station is Taunton. Journeys take about 2 hours from London or Birmingham, 1 hour from Bristol and 30 minutes from Exeter. Coaches: Taunton is about 4 hours from London and 1 hour from Bristol. National Express run regular services to Taunton. See www.nationalexpress.com. If you come by coach you will need to allow 15 minutes to walk to the train station exit by platform 2. 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?

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

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 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; cleaning the showers and compost toilets, 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. Extra blankets are available. Three healthy meals a day will be provided which will be mostly organic, vegetarian, and made using locally sourced produce where possible. Special dietary requirements can be provided for.

Volunteers will work on various tasks such as assisting in the gardens and in the farm, looking after the animals, painting internal and external walls walls around the site, erecting a fence in the front field, preparing and cooking food in the kitchen.

Volunteers will be camping at the Clervaux Fold Farm (please bring your own tent). There is a shower and compost toilet block and large kitchen and dining area. Volunteers will be sharing this during the day with whoever is on site but will have it only to themselves in the evening.

Lage und Freizeit

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Clervaux Trust works with young people who are experiencing difficulties with their educational experience through a practical skills curriculum on the land and using craftwork. We have a 100 acre site and plan to develop a biodynamic farm with market garden and animals. Much of the development work is in the very early stages and help with building it all up would be very gratefully received. The trust also opened a bakery and cafe in Darlington centre which is supplied by food and produce from Clow Beck Eco Centre. We aim to make the people of Darlington as healthy as possible with access to great organic and biodynamic food, as well as giving young people an understanding of life cycles and processes. Clow Beck Eco Centre has a mix of fields, woodlands, rivers, and boggy areas in a lovely part of North Yorkshire. There may well be other courses running over the summer as well so things could either be quite active at times and sleepy at other moments.

Arbeit

The volunteers will be working with the farmers and COCA members to prepare for COCA’s annual Community Feast and Harvest Festival which will take place at the farm on 16th / 17th August. The festival will bring together COCA members and the local community to celebrate this year’s harvest, and to eat, drink, and enjoy live music. The event will also act as an educational platform to share thoughts and ideas on sustainable and eco-friendly food production. The volunteers will take a very active role in the festival preparations, including event administration, decorating the venue, promoting and publicising and preparing food. The volunteers will also be helping out with general farm work, including weeding and planting a wide variety of vegetables and salads. Volunteers will be able learn about community supported agriculture, and develop horticultural skills. This is also a great opportunity to gain experience in event management, and volunteers will have the chance to be very creative.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will live in one of the farm buildings or one of the mobile homes (caravans) or in tents (depending on weather and availability) and will need to bring warm sleeping bags. There is a barn area for communal activities, and a kitchen and shower nearby. The group will cook together using produce from the farm whenever possible. Some food will also come from surplus food donations which is a part of COCA's ethic to live in a sustainable way and avoids waste wherever possible.

Lage und Freizeit

Caerhys is located in Pembrokeshire, a beautiful National Park area situated on the coast of West Wales. Although this project is remote, the nearest city of St David’s (the smallest city in the UK) is four miles away and buses to the city run around four times a day during the peak season. There are lots of activities available in this area including walking the famous Welsh Coastal path, water sports such as kayaking, surfing and coasteering, as well as rock climbing and fishing. Despite being small the area is a very popular tourist destination thanks to its natural beauty and vibrant culture. Days off will be negotiated on arrival, but usually these are on the weekend or some weekdays around the festival.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Caerhys Organic Community Agriculture (COCA) is an agricultural scheme run for and supported by the local community. COCA members share delicious organic food grown in partnership with local farmers. For more information visit the COCA website at www.coca-csa.org
