I really enjoyed volunteering with dirty weekenders, it was a rather great experience, having to work with people with such fantastic attitude and wide experience, it made me look forward to going back and do more of these projects and be more productive on my Sundays! I would highly recommend this group and it’s projects to anyone for three main reasons; nice food “The sandwiches were amazing!”, good place to learn new stuff, and last but not least the company.
In my day out with dirty weekenders I learned new skills. For example, how to function in a team, divide the tasks between the team members, building birdhouses “writing cheesy messages on them as well haha”, cutting tree branches and garden keeping.
I would like to thank the organisers and everyone who helped in this project, it was wonderful, with a perfect combination of tasks, people, social gathering and science, Cheers !
