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.
