April 20th – May 25th ’18
The main jobs during the Anilio spring workcamp as we prepare the space for the summer workshops will be putting together the Long Room where we run our workshops and preparing and planting our garden.
In addition to the main building projects, there will be a number of minor building and maintenance jobs.
We will be setting up our 5m yurt on the terrace for anyone wishing to learn the basics of yurt construction and maintenance.
There’ll be loads of gardening work as we expand the organic vegetable garden.
In addition to the main building and renovation projects of the Spring workcamp there is spring cleaning, our rooms need beautifying with fabrics and paintings and of course there is the support team to help with cooking, cleaning, gardening etc.
Community Building during the Spring Workcamp
Both workcamps provide an opportunity to join the work rhythms of the Centre, to learn natural building methods, organic gardening and to participate in authentic community building. People often elect to stay on after the Spring workcamp and join our summer staff and there are often opportunities for extending your stay in this way.
All of our spring workcamp projects give excellent opportunities for gender role reversal as you can see from the photos on this page depicting workers from our previous camps.
