We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.
Please note, organisations are currently experiencing a large volume of enquiries from people looking to help out. They may not always be able to meet this demand so please be patient, you may not receive a quick response or be assigned to a role.
We are keen to create a community garden space and are looking for people interested in gardening, willing to learn or to teach. Want to be part of a social group, have fun and not afraid of having your hands dirty? This is an opportunity for you then!
Things you would do:
*Planting flowers, plants, vegetables, trees.
*Making areas with bird houses, feeding trays
*Keeping the place tidy.
*Putting nice ornaments in place.
*Sourcing benches for people to sit and relax
*Watering the plants
*Coming up with ideas to make the place look nice
*Hanging baskets around the centre
*Making our grounds look nice, tidy, colourful
People would meet on Tuesday, but feel free to come any day as the garden will require attention everyday.
This is a great opportunity to learn/teach how to garden, spend time outside, meet new people.
