How can you help?

  • Do you have a few hours free on a regular basis?
  • Do you enjoy meeting new people from the local area?
  • Do you like being outdoors?
  • Would you like to learn a new skill ?

There are lots of ways to join in with regular work in the garden, or helping out at one of our courses and classes or community events.

The garden needs lots of attention at different times of the year , so volunteers are always welcome. We will try to organising regular work programmes to suit the time that volunteers can afford to give but essentially you can come any time that suits you and we will be grateful for your help.

The main thing is that you are able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Community Garden. No experience is necessary, all the tools you need and protective clothing will be provided.

There are lots of other things that the Community Action Team are involved in such as running arts and craft workshops, arranging outings , providing training courses and public meetings on various issues . All of these require administrative support , ordering and paying for services , arranging meetings, transport, publicity etc . And of course our website needs to be maintained. If you would like to help out on any of these please let us know.

Volunteering is a great way to gain practical experience that might be useful when looking for work, and gardening is great (free) exercise! You also get to enjoy the produce!
