Working as part of a team, Volunteer Gardeners will help care for the Community Garden. The Community Garden is located in the Kitchen Garden at home farm and is used by various groups at different times of the year. They are looking for people who can nurture and maintain the space for groups and others to enjoy. Additionally, they need someone who can delegate tasks to groups and give clear instruction when required. This role will suit people who have some experience of gardening and enjoy working as part of a team. The role can be physically demanding, so you'd need to be reasonably fit and willing to work out of doors in all weather conditions.

Out-of-pocket travel costs between home and volunteering place will be paid, and other reasonable expenses agreed in advance.
