We offer informal volunteering opportunities in the garden every Wednesday 2pm - 4pm and every other Sunday 1pm - 3pm. We also run a Family Group every other Sunday 3pm - 5pm for children, families and young people to have a go at gardening and be in nature.


Come along and enjoy being outside, sharing skills and stories, meeting others and helping the garden to grow!


Tasks are seasonal and can include weeding, planting out, sowing seeds, watering and nurturing plants and harvesting. Whilst volunteers make an invaluable impact to the community space, we also focus on tailoring sessions to what you want to see and do in your community garden.


No gardening experience is necessary and we provide tools & gloves.


Volunteers can attend on an ad hoc basis or commit to regular sessions depending on their preference.


We also run events throughout the year so there are opportunities to help with organising and running stalls at our public events.


Volunteers can also take part in end of season get togethers, events and workshops as well as applying to rent a raised bed to grow your own organic veg!


If you have a group/project that would like to volunteer with us or have a tailored session (such as a tour, workshop, activity etc) please do get in touch as we are always keen to work with local groups!
