Volunteer Days At HOPE

Next Volunteer day Saturday 28th May 2022

Thanks to all who joined us for Volunteer Days in November, March and April.

Our gardeners are looking for volunteer support to help to get the garden ready for spring, including fence painting, minor repairs and tidying, and planting early and main crop potatoes.

We will be there from 10am to 3pm (weather dependent) so please come along and stay as long as you like – from half an hour to the whole day. We will have gloves available on the days but please wear warm clothing and suitable footwear. We will be providing hot and cold drinks plus soup and savoury scone for lunch.

Please let us know if you would like to help on the day by either emailing enquiries@hopeorganicgarden.org.uk or phone 07973 322 457. Let us know if you will staying for lunch (and any dietary requirements)!

We look forward to seeing you on the day.

Additional Volunteering Opportunities

In addition to our one-off Volunteer Days we are also recruiting volunteers for the following roles:

Volunteer Gardeners

We are currently looking for experienced gardening volunteers to join our team at the garden. Good knowledge of growing vegetables and soft fruits is required. This is an ideal an opportunity to learn about organic gardening practices. Minimum commitment would be 3 hours a week.

Volunteer Mentors

We are also looking for Volunteer Mentors to work one to one with our trainee gardeners enabling them to achieve their goals during their placement at the garden. Some gardening knowledge would be good but good people skills and nurturing skills are more important.

As part of the recruitment process both these positions require the completion of an application form, two references and a PVG Check. For an application form or for more information please email enquiries@hopeorganicgarden.org.uk or phone 07973 322 457.
