VolunteerTalgud

Many hands make light work! Seedrioru needs the help and support of the volunteers. Join in for the work or "talgud" days to bring Seedrioru back to life after winter hibernation, reconnect with old friends and enjoy some social time. 

We have multiple work days through out the spring and fall to help get the facilities ready for summer camp. We typically provide a full, hearty lunch for the volunteers, and an evening Sauna is usually held to get clean at the end of the day.  Find  our  2017 planned worked days from the post below.  You can also get details on the Seedrioru Facebook Page as well.

Thank you

Seedrioru couldn't function without the help and support of all the volunteers. We appreciate any help that anyone in the community can provide. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone who has helped out at Seedrioru!
