Description

Planting and growing and general gardening can be very theraputical and good for your mental health and general wellbeing as well as keeping you active.

We know that many people keep active through gardening, but moving to a flat or experiencing a health condition may hamper their ability to stay involved in a hobby that used to give them so much pleasure - that's where the allotment comes in.

Coming along to the community allotment (Growing Friends) offers access to disability friendly growing with companionship thrown in too.

We hope you may know more about planting and growing than we do! But it's not essential. We are looking for volunteers who can help us plan the allotment use, help with the planting and growing activity and interact with our volunteer team. All equipment is provided. We just need your enthusiasm.

We hope you will get the enormous satisfaction from seeing something you put in the ground grow and flourish. You will also be able to help support others in our communities try something new or something they once enjoyed. The role would suit someone who wanted to get out and about a little more and meet new people.

Due to Covid we have had to have a flexible approach to our opportunities
