Volunteering opportunities to join the team at Five-a-Day Market Garden


We will be running our Thyme Together sessions for older people starting Thursday 4th April and are appealing for volunteers to assist our session leader Debs to support participants.  The sessions run weekly in the afternoons from 1-3pm on Thursdays through to October 31st 2019 and are an opportunity for older people to come to the garden and take part in gardening and art and craft activities using natural and recycled materials.  There may be some extra sessions to support to fulfil our funder’s requirements.  If you are interested or have taken part before and would like to do so again please email Wendy at wendy@fiveaday.org.uk expressing an interest.

We are looking for volunteers for the Green Gardening/Green Art sessions for Adult Learners on Wednesdays 11am – 2pm. You will support our Tutor Debs to deliver a course for 10 weekly sessions.  You will help participants with learning disabilities to learn how to grow plants, participate in practical wildlife activities including pond dipping, sweep netting and log turning and create individual and group artwork and sculptures in the Green Art sessions.

Sessions are adapted to individual  learners.

You will need to be DBS checked as you will be working with vulnerable adults.  These are fun sessions to deliver and very rewarding. 

If you are interested please email Wendy at wendy@fiveaday.org.uk expressing an interest and provide details of any previous experience.
