Support at our allotment group at Woodley Allotments!

Gardening / Outdoor work volunteers needed for Sport in Mind in RG5

Sport in Mind are looking for an enthusiastic and friendly volunteer to support at our allotment group at Woodley Allotments on Reading Road every Tuesday 11-1PM.

This is a great opportunity to share/gain knowledge of gardening and growing techniques – and to support people in the local community who are experiencing mental health problems in a safe, supported, and welcoming environment.

You don’t have to have any experience of gardening, but you will need to have a good grasp of ‘softer skills’ – we are looking for someone who is approachable, patient, and understanding to make sure that our attendees gain the maximum benefit from attending our allotment group.
