Fruit Routes offers rewarding opportunities where you can give your time, develop new skills and gain valuable experience whilst making a real difference to the local community. Our orchards always need work doing so if you are looking to volunteer we would love to hear from you.
Fruit Routes volunteers can gain new practical skills, reduce their stress levels and get involved with some great activities. You can get your hands dirty by doing community gardening, orchard maintenance and community woodwork or take part in a more supportive role with opportunities including fund raising, admin, marketing or project management.
Activities for volunteers include:
- planting/maintaining the orchard and growing spaces;
- fundraising – organising events and generating local publicity;
- making things including sheds, fences, furniture and planters;
- designing floral displays, creating wildlife areas and similar;
- organising – people, local activities and fundraising events;
- planning, managing and helping to run our projects;
Gain practical experience with an environmental twist whilst contributing towards a good cause. If digging and planting is not for you then perhaps marketing, research, photography, video or project design and management is more suitable. How about planning, organising and running a creative event at the orchard. What do you want to do?
We offer a range of experiential learning opportunities and workshops. We work in partnership with local training providers, community organisations and independent specialists to provide training which helps develop confidence, knowledge, and practical skills. What would you like to know?
Work Pod Hire
Our work spaces are available for hire so if you are looking to work in a natural and no frills environment then consider hiring one of our work pods. Escape the office and get closer to nature. It really is good for you.
