A Typical Day at Earthworks
At Earthworks we all work and learn together. Every Earthworker and volunteer contributes to keeping our site beautiful and productive.
Activities at Earthworks change with the seasons. Tasks include growing fruit and vegetables, general gardening, mowing and strimming, country crafts, woodwork, bonfires, basic construction, chopping fire wood and kindling, making deliveries, selling produce and building wildlife habitats around our ponds, meadow and woodland
Whether you plant a single onion seed or paint a whole fence panel during the day, your contribution makes a difference here.
There is also the chance to attend events to represent Earthworks, man stalls at events, present talks about Earthworks to community groups, and sometimes even appear on local radio. Our Earthworkers have a voice that is respected and appreciated in the wider community.
The staff and volunteers are always at hand to help Earthworkers enjoy their favourite jobs and learn new things. Everyone is supported to take part in a way that is most suitable for them. Although the jobs change, each day follows the same basic routine.
