Springhill Community Garden seeks to provide a space which includes growing opportunities for food and beauty, as well as supporting wildlife. Raised beds are available for individuals to grow food for themselves, as well as communal beds for growing larger crops such as potatoes and beans. Through community links with local schools, youth groups and businesses, the garden seeks to promote a sense of community working together to build something for others.
We are looking to create a community of gardeners - no experience necessary. As well as growing your own food, the garden presents an opportunity to develop educational workshops and social events, cultivate wildlife, and engage with other community groups in the area.
A fantastic opportunity to help in a wonderful Community Garden. For more information please contact Pamela McEwan, Committee Member at email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone: 07842 261037.

We are looking for volunteers who could contribute to the children starting a fruit and vegetable garden to allow the children to learn how to plant, watch grow then produce soup, jams, etc for the community and possibly start a little garden shop enterprise.
We have ongoing projects involving painting, maintenance, building sheds, planting, and weeding developing areas within the school grounds.
We have a pond and the children enjoy getting involved with pond dipping to see what wildlife it attracts so additional volunteers would allow us to plan more days doing these things.
We are a small village school with a great group of children some of whom would benefit greatly from working and learning from adults out with the classroom.
