Part-Time Garden Maintenance Volunteer

Required for small charity in Whitley, Reading that provides horticulture therapy support for people with mental health challenges.

We seek the help of a person who has good practical skills, is reliable and enjoys working outdoors. We need support with the general upkeep of the site; buildings, walkways, painting, irrigation and lots more.

This is a part-time, unpaid position, for a few hours mornings and/ or afternoons on a Tuesday or Thursday each week.
