Do you have what it takes?
Do you love the great outdoors, enjoy nature and conservation and want to contribute to the beautiful landscape of Devon and Dorset?
We have a variety of volunteering opportunities available for people who like nothing better than to get back to nature. As part of our commitment to the wildlife on our farms we carry out a variety of land management activities including:
- Balsam control
- Bracken bashing
- Gardening projects
- Hedge planting
- Pond restoration
- Scrub clearance
- Woodland management
Your contribution will help us to enhance the biodiversity of our farms, and improve the landscape for generations of donkeys and visitors to come.
The following current volunteer roles are available:

If you have any species survey experience, we would also love to hear from you. These activities require a reasonable level of fitness and a willingness to be outdoors.

Each activity will start by 10am and finish by 4pm with breaks for lunch and refreshments during the day.
