EcoLocal have developed a large community allotment where people can learn gardening skills hands-on.
Drop-in volunteering sessions available Monday afternoons and Friday mornings at the Westmead Road Allotment site (entrance off Colston Avenue). For keener, able, gardeners, there may be opportunity to volunteer with our resident gardener on other days.
You’ll need to be prepared to help at the food growing sessions, weeding, watering, sowing and growing, you even get to take a share of the harvest home to eat – for free!
Wear appropriate clothes and footwear you don’t mind getting muddy, and be prepared to get wet and/or dirty from time to time. Bring warm clothes too if it’s a cold day.
