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 2019 ‘til further notice
Our Sunday drop in sessions will run once a month, beginning on Sunday 24th February 11-1 p.m., then Sunday 24th March.
After the clocks change we will run from 10-12 from Sunday 28th April, May 26th, June 30th, July 28th, August 25th until September 29th. October 27th and November 24th we will revert to 11-1p.m.
We are looking at running a weekday evening drop in (6-7p.m.) during the Summer- if you are interested please contact us.
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.
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch or pop along to the garden during one of our volunteer sessions to find out how you can get involved.
Contact Kathy Cook or just pop along to the garden during one of our sessions for a chat. We look forward to seeing you.
