The Woodland Presents, a not-for-profit on the Dartington Estate, are striving to make British woodlands thrive by connecting people with trees and timber in new and meaningful ways. At our woodland venue ‘the Glade’ we run workshops, courses, maker-space, private and public events and a community woodland group. Our mission is to build a new woodland culture and start a ‘Treenaisance’.
We are seeking volunteers, helpers, diggers, woodworkers, carpenters, donors, supporters, dreamers, people with big smiles and warm hearts to help us rejuvenate our beautiful Glade with some needed fixing up and love in time for when the trees start budding.
We are reaching out to you and kindly asking for assistance to help us in our mission, whether big or small anything would be truly amazing.
Listed are some things we need help with;
- a workforce skilled or unskilled of carpenters, woodworkers, hammerers, ladder holders (we can train the unskilled and the skilled can teach their talents)
- electricians to help rewire our solar panel connections and festoon lighting
- woodworking and gardening tools and equipment to borrow for the weekend
- willing diggers and planters of trees and woodland shrubs to re-wild the area
- donations of wood to mend and enhance some of our structures, wood chipping to protect the forest floor and wild shrubs for planting
- funding to help buy needed materials (like nails, rope ,canvas, carabiners to hoist up our parachutes)
- any support and ideas that you may want to bring
We will provide you with endless cups of hot and cold drinks, groovy bopping music and wonderful woodland-made waffles and treemendous gratitude.
If you would like to participate in the Glade community volunteer day or donate in any way possible please contact sylvie on or 07454688238.
