Main Tasks: Plant produce; Weeding; Light gardening; Planting seedlings; Hanging baskets & general garden tasks. Tasks involved are all aimed at enhancing the community garden. Ensuring all volunteering Health & Safety procedures are adhered to at all times. The Knowe Community garden is being developed and requires ongoing maintenance of plants and weeding etc. We have a Geodome and polytunnel, therefore, some of the tasks may be indoors in bad weather. We will be planting seeds, growing plants, tomatoes and other vegetables for use in the local community.
We are a community led anchor organisation with the specific aim of regenerating our local communities. Our vision is for Auchinleck and its surrounding areas to be a healthy and happy place to live and play.
Younger volunteers will require to be accompanied by an adult.
Experience required: Some gardening experience would be an advantage, however, more important is a desire to make a difference and assist at The Knowe; to provide a welcoming and safe environment within the community of Auchinleck. Volunteers are required to follow the policies and procedures contained in our volunteer handbook and to treat our staff, volunteers and service users with respect.
