Green & Away runs Europe’s only sustainable outdoor venue every summer. We welcome committed, hardworking people willing to help us provide an important service for the UK’s voluntary, social and environmental organisations.
There is a wide range of jobs which need to be done to build the camp putting up canvas marquees, for the village circle kitchen, bar, cafe and the main marquee then there are a variety of accommodation standard tents, yurts and bell tents to provide for the large numbers who come to our events. Once the camp is set up the jobs change to cooking, washing up, arts and crafts activities, welcoming people, office work, maintaining the toilets, lighting the burners to heat water for showers, etc.
At the end of the season, it all needs to be taken down and stored for the winter. We will find out what your skills are and try to match your skills and interests to what needs to be done, to ensure that the less attractive jobs are shared around. All the jobs carry a measure of responsibility.
Our volunteers are unpaid and you will need to bring your own tent to stay in while you are with us. However, as part of your volunteering with us, we provide three vegetarian meals a day, tea and coffee and space for you to pitch your tent. We ask that you stay for at least one week, are over 18, willing to work hard, have conversational English (we do a Skype call to check your English is alright) and are committed to our ethos as an organisation.
