Work Experience and Volunteering
Volunteers are one of the biggest assets of the project with far reaching impact, they help to maintain and develop the gardens, generate income, deliver events and we also have volunteers that help with the packing and delivering of veg bags. We welcome new volunteers to join our well established team of volunteers, we will help you to develop your skills and enjoy your time as a volunteer.
Work placement and work experience programmes are available for school students, young people and adults. The programme is a great way to develop your skills, build your experience and confidence. Supported activities include harvesting and growing, customer service and garden outdoor maintenance.
