We Need Volunteers!

Digswell is a community gardening project providing space and support for a wide range of people from the local community. We spend our time growing plants, developing the site, planning events, serving customers and enjoying being with other people.

There are lots of volunteering opportunities at Digswell and we are always looking for new people who can volunteer for us to help create and maintain a great community project. Whatever you can contribute, the time and skills you bring will be greatly valued, and hopefully in return, will be very rewarding for you.

Here are just a few of the areas where volunteers can make a difference:

  • Horticultural activities
  • Assisting people using the service with training in horticulture
  • Landscaping and maintenance
  • Site development / carpentry / construction
  • Assisting people on the retail side – both in the nursery and the coffee shop
  • Administrative duties
  • Assisting with events

We ask our volunteers to be self-motivated and be able to work unsupervised. We love people who can bring new ideas and will help us to achieve Digswell’s plans and projects.

Many of the opportunities are outdoors and you will be working alongside existing members of the team to ensure the effective running of Digswell.
