Event Description:

What will I be doing?

Join David, Tree Nursery Manager for Cairngorms Connect, for one of the regular Tree Nursery work parties.

 

Activities include tree nursery tasks, such as weeding seed beds, transplanting seedlings from seed trays to root trainers, and preparing beds for new seed sowing.

 

Trees grown in the nursery will be planted out across the Cairngorms Connect project area, as part of our 200 year vision to restore the ecology of this area.

 

When?

Volunteer days will be monthly at first, but may be more frequent depending on demand.  Dates will be added to the webpage throughout the year. Please take a look at the current sessions to see if there are dates that meet your availability. 

 

What do I need to bring?

Please bring sturdy footwear and weather-appropriate clothing suitable for gardening activities.  Please also bring your own gloves as we are currently not able to share these. Tools will be provided. Please bring your own food, drinks and water (kitchen facilities are limited due to Covid restrictions).

 

Who can come?

Please note that volunteers under 18 are to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

 

Getting here

Access is via 1.5 miles of unpaved vehicle track. No specialist vehicle is needed, but the track is uneven and care should be taken.

 

Note for winter sessions

We have some covered workspaces and will endeavour to make the day go ahead even when the weather is poor.  However sessions may be subject to cancellation in the case of severe adverse weather.
