Ashford Greens Action Day at The Retreat @ The Retreat Animal Rescue Farm Sanctuary and Café
Jan 21 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Our good friends, Ashford Greens, have another one of their great action days at the Retreat. Come along and spend the day helping out and meeting the furry and feathered residents. The work can involve anything from lifting and shifting, clearing and cleaning, and there might even be some planting to do to.

Please be aware it can be muddy and slippy, so bring warm clothing/waterproofs and wellies!

The Retreat is a vegan environment. Feel free to bring your own vegan/veggie snacks as it can be hungry work.
