Community Garden Support Worker

Details Hide[-]


...We are working to promote the importance of growing nutritious produce for those that need it the most...

Our vision is that our two food growing sites will offer therapeutic opportunities and vocational skills training as well as being a productive growing space to supplement the food given out at our Rebuilding Lives support centres.

We are working with natural gardening principles and permaculture ethics. Volunteers and clients will work together learning practices that encourage biodiversity, and food growing methods to produce nutritious and delicious food.

As this project develops there will be opportunities not only in the growing, but to learn skills in event planning, social media and marketing, budgeting and scheduling.


...We currently meet every Thursday 12-4pm at Talbot Road Allotments and tend to work Wednesday afternoons at Hartcliffe Park farm...
