Upcoming volunteering at Oakbrook Farm

Tree planting and care:

Together we planted over 100 saplings at Oakbrook Farm, Old Painswick Road, GL6 7QN  in the winter of 2017/18.  The following summer we lost some of the bigger oak saplings to the drought.  So in winter 2018/19 we planted four more oaks.  The watering rota last summer succeeded in keeping them all alive.  Good work. Now the trees need a bit more light and space from the brambles and weeds that they are competing with.  So we will be gathering again on Saturday March 14th to do some clearing and mulching with wood chip.

Please join us at any time between 10am and 4pm on Saturday March 14th

Apart from whatever refreshments you need, there is no need to bring anything at all but if you have any of the following they would be welcome: Gardening gloves, Secateurs, Gardening fork, Hoe, Wheelbarrow. Please pass this on to anyone you know who might like to help look after these lovely young trees.  Together we will help them thrive. Thanks and best wishes Nick

Get involved at Oakbrook Community Farm

There are many ways of getting at Oakbrook Farm !

Volunteering: there are opportunities to volunteer, such as tree care, planting trees when the Agroforestry and other schemes are implemented; hedge laying, clearing some of the overgrown brook at the Oakbrook Haven Field for safe playing. However, we need people to volunteer, organise and lead such land-care activities as currently we have limited capacity. Administration, fundraising, book keeping and a range of farming, construction, ecological, arboriculture, gardening, business skills are needed as appropriate.
