A group of Kellas volunteers spent a very productive afternoon with the Camphill Wellbeing Trust in Aberdeen last week.
We worked with the trust’s Compass Project which is transforming the site of a former school into a centre demonstrating practical solutions for healthy, sustainable living – combining recycling, social enterprise, education, and sustainable building practices.
We got stuck into a range of jobs including weeding and preparing a section of ground that will become a garden plot for no-dig produce, tidying an outdoor composting area and building a new compost structure, and clearing space around and above a large dry stane dyke.
The project has ambitious targets for 2023 including opening a zero-waste kitchen/café for processing onsite produce and education, and opening a multi-purpose hall for community groups. It has already clocked up thousands of volunteering hours thanks to regular clear-up days as well as corporate volunteering, and we were delighted to play our part.
