Summary

A wide variety of gardening activities within a mental health setting supporting adults age 16+

Detailed description

The Walled Garden provides gardening activities for our clients to support their recovery journey. With support from our paid staff and volunteers, they help develop and maintain the garden grounds. Along with tended borders and plant cultivation, we also grow vegetables, soft fruit, apples and pears for sale. No matter where your interest lies in gardening, you may find new opportunities to broaden your skills and contribute to our development.

You will be a good listener with a pleasant personality and a good sense of humour. The role would require you to be non-judgemental, be able to provide support and encouragement and work well as part of a team. Knowledge of any aspect of gardening would be advantageous, but we can also provide some training.
