Community Gardener

  • VO38655


Description

Ardler Environmental Group are responsible for the maintainance and upkeep of the Ardler Community Garden area. Our volunteers meet once a week on Wednesday mornings to develop and maintain the gardens for the enjoyment of the community. You will help with weeding beds and planting new plants both for the gardens and for selling at community festivals. You can learn about different plants and their upkeep, hanging baskets and how to layout a garden. More experienced gardeners can share their knowledge with the rest of the group who are always keen to learn. When the weather is less clement the group organises trips to garden centres and other gardens to get ideas which you are welcome to take part in.

Organisation aims and objectives

On Wednesday morning if the weather is fine, Ardler Environmental Group gets together for a gardening session. Its fun, educational and helps to keep Ardler green and tidy and when we are finished we all enjoy tea and a natter. We also visit other gardens and garden centres to explore ideas for our garden.
