Join us!

We are open to the public Tuesdays and Thurdays 10am till 3pm. On both days there are volunteer gardening sessions and on Thursdays we run health and wellbeing workshops.

Volunteer day

Get some fresh air in your lungs on volunteer day. Rake some leaves, pull some weeds, plant some veg, feed our ducks. There's always something to do and you're most welcome to join in. Volunteer days are every Tuesday and every Thursday, 10am-3pm.
