This will involve accompanying patients from the hospital ward into the garden, and helping lead group sessions that could include other volunteers and visitors, as well as one-to-one sessions if required. This will involve providing feedback to the Garden Coordinator, as well as staff from the hospital. The role will require flexibility, so that if a patient does not feel like doing structured activity, or wishes to spend time in a quiet space relaxing or simply enjoying being outside in a green environment, that is as important as completing an agreed task.
Training in both horticultural skills, and awareness of the different needs of patients, such as mental ill health, learning disability, dementia etc, will be provided, as well as supervision from the Garden Coordinator.

Every week, we organise practical work groups to carry out various habitat management and estate work around the RSPB site. We need your help to keep on top of essential reserve management and one-off tasks across a variety of beautiful habitats.
Typical tasks include fencing repairs, scrub removal, vegetation management, invasive species removal, ditch clearing and lots more!
All tasks are vital for conservation of important wildlife and habitats - you would be directly contributing to the protection of our countryside - and for retaining good access to, and around the site.
An opportunity to help with habitat management, become part of a small, friendly team and learn about the running of the site, plus be involved with one of the RSPB's most exciting sites. You'll get a chance to enjoy the place, learn more about our plans and really get your hands dirty! You'll also pick up or be able to share skills and techniques.
This is an excellent chance to make a genuine contribution to wildlife conservation. You will gain a valuable insight into the workings of Europe's largest conservation charity.
Volunteers will undertake a series of conservation tasks including path maintenance, drainage works, woodland management, scrub clearing and removal of non-native invasive species. Occasionally more technical work is involved, such as building and installing benches.
Training is given for each task we undertake. Explanations as to why we are doing something and how we do it are given, as well as safe tool use and health and safety talks.
Volunteers need to dress for the weather and wear sturdy footwear. Bring a packed lunch, hot and cold drinks available.
The group meets every second Thursday of the month from 10:30am onwards.

The garden at the centre will require ongoing maintenance, including digging, weeding, mowing the lawn and pruning flowers and bushes.

Eadha is one of Scotland's leading Aspen conservation charities. Aspen is a rare native tree but one which is potentially very useful and productive. Aspen rarely sets seed so propagating it is challenging. We survey the remote areas of the country to find surviving trees from which we then extract root cuttings for propagation. We then use a specialised lab to generate planting stock using tissue culture methods. They supply us with small plants which we pot up and grow on in our nursery. Aspen supports a more wildlife than any other tree and we develop woodland projects into which it can be planted. We are also growing other native trees and wildflowers.
We are looking for volunteers to help us in our nursery at Bishopton to help with propagation. pot on the aspen trees. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to work, to learn new skills and help to conserve native species.
Looking for a volunteer to assist the Lead Gardener and to welcome people to enjoy the Forfar Open Garden.The volunteer would be involved in some administration tasks as well as leaflet drops and to help organise the office and meeting area.
