Gardening Volunteer

  • VO83235


We are currently looking for volunteers for our open volunteer days on Thursdays. Volunteers will drop in any time between 10am - 5pm and spend time cultivating the market garden and beautifying the Croft. This is not only a good opportunity to get involved in our community, but also a great way to get hands-on experience of gardening and DIY crafts led by our education officers. Spend time outside, learn something and meet great folks!
