About Scrub up for Juniper

Help the struggling juniper to thrive once more on Harting Down.

Juniper once thrived here at Harting Down, but now its struggling to battle against spreading thorn scrub and choking bramble and clematis. We need volunteers to tackle the scrub and free the juniper with the favourite task of cutting and burning the overgrown vegetation. No skills necessary, but be prepared for dense thorn scrub and bramble. The reward is restoring downland and juniper habitat to benefit a wealth of wildlife, and spending the week in a very beautiful place! 

About the accommodation

Slindon Bunkhouse is a converted stable block on the 1,400-hectare estate at Slindon between Arundel and Chichester. The estate is typical of the South Downs with rolling hills and farmland set against a background of woodland and hedges. In addition to that it has an ancient deer park and various archaeological sites. The bunkhouse has a recently refurbished kitchen and seating area with sofas.
