We need somebody to look after the plants in the Greenhouse in our Victorian Walled Garden. We grow small plants for sale at Wallington Farmers Market to raise funds for the Carshalton Community Allotment. Initally we need you to give the greenhouse a really good tidy up and clean. Then we need somebody to come in about once a week to look after the plants; pot them on, sow more, keep them organised, keep the greenhouse tidy etc. Obviously watering is needed daily in hot weather but we don't expect you to do that. However if you could fill up a supply of watering cans from the tap once per week so that they are ready for us to use that would help. Then, once a month a month the plants that are ready for market need to be packed into crates ready for us to transport. And we need a list of which platns they are are and how many of each. If you wanted to help on the sale stall at the market you'd be welcome, but it's not a requirement at all.
see http://www.ecolocal.org.uk/contact-us.php for map and public transport details.
Cleaning & Tidying,Gardening
You need to be able to work independently, use your own initiative, have common sense and enjoy organising things. You need to know how to look after plants; watering, repotting, weeding. It's not absolutley necessary to be an expert on which plants are which - we don't know what they are all are, but we know people who can help us identify them.
Enjoy being in our peaceful garden space (though be aware the garden is in need of renovation). Get a sense of achievement through making the greenhouse organised, tidy, clean and productive. Contribute to helping us raise funds for a good cause.
