Volunteers are an essential part of our Growing People team, we couldn’t provide our horticultural therapy sessions without their help.
We welcome enquiries from people interested in volunteering with us and are particularly looking for:
- Support Volunteers
- support our horticultural therapists working alongside people with mental health issues. The main criteria for this role is that you enjoy being with people, that you share our values and have 3 hours a week which you are willing to donate. Support volunteers are DBS checked and we ask for references.
- Garden Volunteers
- carry out general gardening work and maintenance
- help to organise or take part in fundraising events
- help with administration
We provide therapy sessions all the year round and try to get outside to work in the garden everyday unless the weather is really bad.
Reliability and having a positive, problem solving attitude are more important to us than gardening knowledge.
