Gardening Volunteer

  • VO96554


We are looking for volunteers for our shared Growing Together project. The project is in our garden grounds surrounding Dudhope Castle. We are creating a multi-sensory garden to improve the experience of the space for our local community. We are looking for volunteer support to assist in developing the garden plans.

We will create themed areas of the garden with the support of volunteers, including a centre garden, a Victorian-themed garden, a wall garden, the back garden and an orchard. You can see more of the plans here: Volunteers can participate in the planning and maintenance of the gardens. You will develop and expand your practical skills while maintaining a space for the local community.

Experience is optional for this role as The Circle and Uppertunity will provide training. You will gain work experience from volunteering with us, and we will provide a CV reference after three months of volunteering.
