This is an opportunity to work with a dedicated group of volunteers and members who attend the Beeslack Family Disabled Club on a Sunday from 12.30 – 3.30 p.m. The group are always looking for new ideas and are always willing to try new things. Members take part in maintaining and developing their dedicated garden space and enjoy being outdoors planting, growing and harvesting a variety of plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables. This is a very sociable group who greatly value the opportunities and activities the club provides. It is also a valuable contribution to your C.V and volunteers under the age of 25 can work towards Saltire Awards.
To maintain the lovely gardens and grounds surrounding the centre for the overall enjoyment of the participants, visitors, staff and volunteers. You will be involved with all aspects of ground maintenance, including weeding and pruning of flower beds. Volunteers please bring your imagination, too!
We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping to lead and pass on their skills to others at a community allotment in Dalmuir. This is an excellent opportunity for someone with good gardening/allotment skills to pass on their knowledge, skills and experience to other volunteers from different backgrounds. The Allotment Assistants will be responsible, with guidance from WDCVS staff, for the planning, planting, tending, etc of seasonal fruit and vegetables at the allotment.
Our events volunteers gain experience in events management, environmental education and public engagement. Jupiter's events tend to be around 2 hours long and will focus on a theme such as 'brilliant butterflies', 'captivating creepy crawlies' or 'phenomenal pond-life'! Most events are targeted at children but we do run events for adults as well. Our events run most weeks through the year but there is no need to commit to every event. Please get in touch if you would like to get involved!
