GARDEN OPENING FROM 5 JULY, and every Sunday as normal, between 10 and 1pm.
Here are our CV19 precautions:
• No more than 8 people on site (2 ELL session leaders and 6 volunteers and visitors).
• Gate to be kept locked during sessions.
• Masks to be worn when at 2m or closer.
• People to work at 2m distances.
• Gate lock, toilet door, toilet seat, tool store lock to be regularly wiped by session leaders and volunteers.
• Tools not to be shared during sessions.
• Please bring your own gloves, if you can. (After use, these will be stored separately for a week in our, very hot, greenhouse)
Come and learn about edible plants - identifying, caring for, eating and propagating them. This includes learning about grafting new fruit trees in March and June! We have a range of gardening tasks all year round and a friendly bunch of volunteers. You don't need to be an experienced gardener, just interested in learning more. Our sessions run from Sundays 10-2 with a shared lunch at 1pm - you can turn up at any point during the session. We always have a salad of unusual leaves with our lunch. During the session we are propagating plants so that we can give them away to community projects for free. If you don't want to learn about gardening, there are opportunities to help maintain our project hardware: the rainwater harvester, the compost bays, the tables, the pond, the paths etc. The work is fun and varied and we somehow always seem to attract lovely volunteers!
If you enjoy volunteering with us and are happy to take on more responsibility there are opportunities such as handling our Insta account, writing blogs or being a session leader.
