Our Generations: Multi-Generation Conservation Weekend

Hazel Hill Wood, near Salisbury: 5th – 7th October 2018

Conservation weekends at Hazel Hill are always lots of fun. This is a great way to help care for this magical wood, learn about its ecology and wildlife, and enjoy good food and company. We have a special theme for this weekend: celebrating and involving older people, and inviting them to join us individually, or with their adult children or grandchildren.

Sustaining the Journey
Part 2 of the Pioneers of Change programme

17th-19th October 2018for all change makers, green pioneers, brave dreamers and activists.
join us at the wood to dream, explore, learn, pause, celebrate work and play…
…to find reflection and nourishment and renewed inspiration for yourself or your team.

What do we need to sustain ourselves on this journey?  If we’re in it for the long haul, what will keep our energy levels up?  How do we respond when the team or context changes? And looking beyond ourselves, what kind of team do we need to build, what partnerships can support our cause, and what legal or financial structures do we need to put in place? Plus how do we deal with any resistance, opposition and red tape challenges we may meet along the way?

In this second residential weekend, we continue our collective journey in the wood. Given that many projects and enterprises collapse within less than three years, we will uncover useful tools and resources to help us keep going, and replenish our enthusiasm, commitment and creative energy. We will also look at ways to create a strong legacy and ensure that our projects survive our departure. Furthermore, this time together is a chance to better understand the dynamics of building long lasting community and the powerful role celebration can play in the conscious recognition and appreciation of everything we’ve accomplished and learned, supporting us to stay motivated and and to avoid burnout.
