    We're slowly turning 44 acres back to native forest, eradicating predators, bringing the birdsong back, opening up access paths and growing our own locally-sourced native trees.
    We've planted around 5,000+ native trees over the last 2 years in a large-scale, long-term and ongoing project.
    We're looking for chilled, positive, fit, conservation-minded people for up to 2 weeks for:
    Light track maintenance, felling small wilding pines, some gardening, some planting, checking traplines, watering baby trees in our small nursery, we have some art projects too.
