We are looking for enthusiastic Volunteers for our exciting growing project in Peebles. Individuals will carry out necessary tasks required to keep the growing area and its surrounding in good condition.
Volunteers for growing projects will help support the Project co-ordinator and Gardener in all activities relating to the growing patch of land allocated for the project. This will include helping in composting, sowing the seeds, digging, weeding, trimming, raking, mowing the grass, watering the plants, and all related gardening activities. They may also manage the participants who will be engaged in the project and make sure all tools are kept under lock and key at the end of each working day. This role would suit someone who is interested in learning more about plants and gaining skills in gardening. You will be working under the supervision of a lead gardener. This role will require bending and some light lifting.
Our aim is to encourage local communities to make informed choices about their food and health.
Experience required: No previous experience is necessary.
Volunteers will gain valuable knowledge, experience and transferable skills throughout the duration of the project.
