The help and generosity of our supporters is vital to ensure we can continue using gardening to improve lives. Your support is greatly valued.
This section gives information on how you can get involved and help us continue our work. If you want more information please telephone or email.
We have identified some main areas for volunteering that include:-
Working on one of our allotments you will provide practical support, including planning, advice, coaching, and carrying out general garden maintenance reapairs.
Some knowledge of gardening is preferred but not essential. Work is undertaken in all weather, so a willingness to work outdoors is essential.
Working with the Project Workers you will provide practical support to the groups, supporting new people to the group, and enabling them to fully participate in group activities. Gardening experience is not essential, but most of the group sessions do take place outdoors.
We meet one day a week and we ask that you are able to attend a minimum of 3 in 4 weekly group sessions.
Helping with repairs:
With 3 large allotment sites ongoing maintenance and repairs is essential to the safety of those who attend the group activities. Working as part of a team you will
provide practical maintenance support including repair to fences and sheds, carry out risk assessments, and provide advice on health and safety on site.
We occasionally have need for administrative support, based in our office, this can include volunteering for one off events such as during Refugee Week, general administration, marketing and PR.
We continue to seek to recruit trustees, particularly with skills in the business and private sector.
We are currently recruiting volunteers for all of the above roles. If you are interested please complete an registration form, giving us your details, let us know a bit about yourself and why you would like to volunteer.
