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, 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.

Lage und Freizeit

Fairthorne Manor is located in a village called Curdridge which is near the city of Southampton on the South Coast of England. It is about 15 minutes’ walk from Fairthorne Manor into the village where there are shops and pubs. The nearest train station is Botley which is about half an hour’s journey into Southampton.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

YMCA Fairthorne Group is a fast-growing charity. Their mission is to champion and add value to young lives by providing experiences that challenge, enable and develop the individual. Fairthorne Manor, part of the Fairthorne Group, delivers outdoor education and environmental programmes to over 20,000 children and young people each year on both a residential and day basis. The Young Carers Festival (YCF) is an exclusive event for young people who have a caring responsibility at home. Run in partnership with The Children’s Society, YCF was created in 2000 to give young carers the chance to have fun away from their caring role, raise awareness of this often hidden group of young people and allow young carers to share experiences with others in a similar situation. 2018 was the 19th annual festival with over 1,500 young people from across the UK attending.

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

The Grayhill Farm is in an area of natural beauty and there is plenty to do and see in the surrounding areas, including Roman Ruins, official walks and rivers. There will be a diverse range of people involved in the project and they enjoy to spend evenings sharing nice meals and enjoying stories and music around the campfire. The project is close to train and bus terminals and the host can take you there in free days, so 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. Working hours are Breakfast at 8am, work starts at 9am, 1 hour lunch, work finishes at 5pm, dinner at 6pm. Wednesday afternoons will be free (3rd of July and 10th of July) and also have Saturday 6th / Sunday 7th off (usually one day off but two can be negotiated).

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Grayhill project is an historical restoration and re-enactment project based in a re-created 16th century landscape near Chepstow in Monmouthshire, they have been hosting international volunteers since the project began in 1987. 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.

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

The camp covers two weeks and involves completing the process for restoration of some old buildings. This will involve putting roof beams and timbers in place and laying 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

The Grayhill Farm is in an area of natural beauty and there is plenty to do and see in the surrounding areas, including Roman Ruins, official walks and rivers. There will be a diverse range of people involved in the project and they enjoy to spend evenings sharing nice meals and enjoying stories and music around the campfire. The project is close to train and bus terminals and the host can take you there in free days, so 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. Working hours are Breakfast at 8am, work starts at 9am, 1 hour lunch, work finishes at 5pm, dinner at 6pm.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Grayhill project is an historical restoration and re-enactment project based in a re-created 16th century landscape near Chepstow in Monmouthshire, they have been hosting international volunteers since the project began in 1987. 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 There is the opportunity to leave later and take part in an English Civil War recreation event in Gloucester (to be confirmed). Volunteers would attend this as attendees or taking part in recreation of the battle and living history recreation of aspects of life – if so they would stay until the 27th August (instead of 23rd) and stay night of 26th at Stuart’s, Grayhill farm manager home. This element will be entirely managed between Grayhill Farm and the Volunteers - if volunteers want to do this we will pass on contact details.

Arbeit

Taraloka hopes to give the volunteers the opportunity to experience living as a community and practising co-operation in living and working together. Women in Taraloka live and work as a specifically Buddhist community and are willing to share what it can look and feel like when living and working from ones deepest values. They will offer the opportunity to learn new practical skills, develop life skills and build confidence through both. They will teach two fantastic meditation practices (which do not make anyone a Buddhist) but which can positively change your life. There will be the opportunity to learn more about Buddhism including ethics, ritual, study, question and answer and personal talks. Again, by attending any of this you are not making yourself Buddhist! The work areas on the project will possibly involve maintenance, decorating and cleaning as well as learning to cook tasty and nutritious vegan meals for the group. In addition to these projects there may be some gardening and landscaping work. This is a work retreat and we are looking for physically fit and healthy women. We hope that the volunteers will have fun working together on these projects as well as meditating together, learning about Buddhism and living as a community. We are offering this opportunity for our volunteers to experience a retreat environment as well as to give their time and energy. We suggest not using your mobile phones and other communication devices during this time. It can be really peaceful and liberating to disconnect from the digital world for a period. Friends and family will be able to contact you on our designated emergency number, should this be necessary during your stay.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

ACCOMMODATION: The retreat centre is mostly level and all communal areas are on the ground floor, with some walk in showers and toilets. Rooms are shared with up to 4 people in a room. Taraloka provides all bedding and bed linen. FOOD: Taraloka provides three well-balanced, nutritious and deliciously tasty vegan meals per day. You will have the chance to learn how to cook this wonderful vegan food while you are there. Please note the retreat centre is totally vegan, please do not bring any meat, fish, or dairy products with you. NB: No alcohol or drugs on site please.

Lage und Freizeit

LOCATION: Close to Whitchurch, Shrewsbury (Shropshire), England near the border with Wales.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Started in 1985, Taraloka is a Women’s Buddhist Community and Retreat Centre of the Triratna Buddhist Community set on the Welsh-Shropshire border. It was a run-down farm that has been gradually renovated, rebuilt and adapted over the years with the help of many different women with many different skills. The importance of providing a context for women in which the practice of meditation and Buddhism could be developed and deepened was a strong motivating factor for everyone who set up this centre. The name Taraloka means realm of Tara. Tara is an archetypal female figure representing the Enlightened qualities of Compassionate Action. Today, the aim of Taraloka is the same. Women go there and explore what meditation can bring into their life; learn something about the relevance of Buddhist teaching to contemporary life; and experience themselves in a different setting to usual.
