Volunteer with us!

Volunteers are at the core of what we do and we appreciate all the support we receive from our volunteer community. No prior skills or knowledge are required to volunteer with us. Our volunteer sessions usually run from March to the end of October. We have 3 types of volunteer sessions:

Market Garden Crew: Join our garden team to maintain our growing space and look after the crops for our veg box scheme. This group is suited to anyone who would like to learn more about growing fruit and veg in a market garden context. Every Thursday 10am – 1pm and from June also 2pm-5pm with an optional potluck lunch in the middle.

Community Gardening, Wellbeing and Social Connections: This group is less focussed on getting jobs done in the market garden and more on meeting others, learning together about gardening and nature and fostering wellbeing. It is suited to anyone who would like to meet others, spend time in a beautiful nature space together and do some gentle gardening. Every Friday 10am – 1pm.

Bee Club: In Bee Club we collectively look after our two bee hives. Please note that this is not a taught beekeeping course. While questions are always welcome and the group facilitator is a trained beekeeper, the focus of this group is on collective learning and supporting each other to look after our hives. All PPE and equipment is provided. Please note that we only have limited spaces available on this group so we are ideally looking for people who can commit to coming along for the whole season. First Sunday of the month (from May), 10am – 1pm.

It is essential that you register before coming to any of our volunteer session. You can do so by emailing our Volunteer Coordinator Elaina at washhousegardencommunity@gmail.com
