Community Garden Volunteer
When We Need You
From 17/12/2008 onwards
We need enthusiastic people to help look after our garden. If you could spare 2 hours a week to do some planting, cutting and growing with only the odd weeding session. This is a large area with raised beds, pergola, orchard and vegetable beds all needing a little care and attention. Tea/coffee and biscuits supplied!
