  • VO75631


Description

Collydean Community Centre is seeking some can-do volunteers to maintain and develop an area of garden and shrubs at the front of the the centre and an area of fenced-in garden with a raised bed and small greenhouse to the back of the centre. This would require someone who has the physical ability to cut back large bushes, cut grass, and other garden maintenance tasks, along with regular watering over the spring and summer. This opportunity might suit someone who has the time to take pride in keeping the garden and front area looking fabulous. For the right volunteer there is the opportunity to go on to lead a gardening group if this is of interest, however there would be no expectation of this
