About the opportunity

Education, Gardening, Health & Wellbeing, Young People

Inspire service users to take an interest in the outdoor space at Amy’s Place and involve them in the development of a regular gardening and/or food growing club. Help people to develop their gardening skills and knowledge specific to growing food, through group workshops, individually tailored support, guidance and encouragement. This is a flexible opportunity and volunteering times and frequency will vary depending on your availability and the needs of service users. It might be every week or fortnight, 3 to 4 hours, ideally for a minimum of four months.


This role requires us to carry out a check through the Disclosure and Barring Service.
