Can you help? Drop-ins are informal, sociable work sessions where seasonal tasks that keep the garden beautiful and productive are done. We rely on volunteer help to sow seeds, weed, nurture and harvest the food plants that we grow. Little or no growing experience is needed, as these sessions are supervised by experienced gardener(s). Tools and gloves provided. All welcome. Children must bring their own responsible adult.
We occasionally need motivated people to help with independent tasks like grass cutting and watering too.
Gardening not your thing?
We welcome people with many different skills, not just gardeners, such as event organisation, publicity, art and design, musical skills, crafts, wildlife surveys and conservation, photography,video, financial knowledge, fundraising, accountancy, leafleting, office skills and construction skills.
From Spring 2020 ‘til further notice
Our Sunday drop in sessions will run fortnightly, beginning on Sunday 1 March 11 – 1.0 p.m. For 2021, the sessions will be at the same time, summer and winter.
Please get in touch if you would like to help and are not sure how best to do so, particularly if you have any special needs or personal limitations to discuss.
