We are looking for outdoor-loving people to help us maintain the adventure playground and kitchen garden at The Vench in Lockleaze.

Our volunteer gardeners are vital to help maintain our kitchen garden and the adventure playground. Tasks include planting, weeding, mowing and strimming. There will be edibles to harvest which you are welcome to a share of. The role would be suitable for anyone looking to undertake simple practical outdoor work as part of a team. It would also be an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to gain practical experience of garden maintenance, we occasionally benefit from horticultural training sessions.

The gardening volunteer team usually meet to work on the garden every Thursday 1-3pm, but you are welcome to pop by at other times during the week to work at your own pace if that suits you.

About the Vench

We’re The Vench, a much-loved adventure playground and community centre in the heart of Lockleaze. For over 45 years we’ve been inspiring imaginative play in a supportive and fun environment to help children and young people learn and grow. We believe in the importance of providing communities with safe places where they can meet, play and connect.  Working with our partners we offer a range of activities and experiences to build resilience and confidence in the young people and families that we support, as well as providing an engaging space for adults, businesses and the wider community. 

When: Every week

Thursday
13:00 - 15:00
You can pop by at other times to work in the garden at your own pace if that suits you!
