Volunteer Leader for the Buzzing Garden

Buzzing about Gardening? Experience of working with volunteers?

We’re looking for someone to lead and expand a group of loyal volunteer gardeners to maintain The Buzzing Garden in Saltwell Park. The established group meets on Mondays between 10am and midday. 

We need a person who can provide basic horticultural training and supervision, and build relationships with organisations and local people to attract more volunteers in order to sustain the group in the long term. 

Initially this will be a voluntary position. We’re seeking funding to finance projects to deliver more structured horticultural training courses and projects to help people use the garden for health and wellbeing purposes. 

The position will suit an enthusiastic gardener who can create a welcoming, positive atmosphere and has some experience of working with volunteers. Experience of grant funding/applications would be useful.

Get in touch with Liz Reid for more details.
