On Saturday the 12th of March it’s volunteer day at the Leiden Xmas Tree Shelter.

Do you enjoy working together with others outdoors or want to give it a try? Helping hands are needed doing odd jobs and gardening. You do not need to be experienced, there is always someone nearby to help you on your way. Gardening: In the afternoon we will sow bee and butterfly flowers to enhance biodiversity. We will also remove blackberry bushes and reeds, and prune willows, from 1 to 4 p.m.  

Odd jobs: The fence and the wood chip paths need to be upgraded, and we want to build a pergola to grow climbing plants, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We can use your help!
A fun do-it-yourself day outside, meeting new people and improving the Xmas Tree Shelter. Bring your lunch, we will provide coffee and tea with something nice to go with it. In the open-air with 1.5 meters distance.
