Garden Volunteers

Did you know that much of the garden has been built by volunteers? Want to get involved?

• Garden warm ups. Get a good warm up before you climb by ferrying wheelbarrows of material. We’ll give you tea and cake in exchange!
• Weekend workdays. Learn new skills and meet new people. We’ll provide the training, equipment and lunch.
• Garden volunteer programme. Mondays - Herbs. Thursdays - Fruit and Veg.

For more information, please take a look at our Garden page
