Gardening / Outdoor work volunteers needed for Green Health Thames Valley in RG2

Volunteers needed at a community gardening project. No gardening experience needed!

Do you have a couple of hours to spare on a weekly or fortnightly basis? Do you like getting outside and gardening? Then volunteering with Green Health Thames Valley could be for you!

We are looking for volunteers to carry out routine gardening tasks at our small garden in Whitley. We provide gardening therapy sessions for adults with mental health concerns and require volunteers to work alongside staff and Clients to help maintain the garden. No gardening experience needed as full training and support will be given to you. All you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to give a few hours as a regular commitment.

We are open Tuesday and Thursday and can offer either a morning or afternoon volunteering session on each day.

We are COVID-19 secure and have procedures in place to make sure that everyone working can do so safely and comfortably. There will only ever be a maximum of 6 people on-site at a time.
