Allotment Volunteer Needed

Are you interested in gardening, want to spend more time outdoors and help out with a community project? Brendoncare are looking for volunteers to help with our community allotment project.

Why volunteer with Brendoncare Clubs?

Brendoncare aims to improve the quality of life for those who are more isolated in our communities. Brendoncare operates social and activity clubs, community services and online clubs. They enable our members to develop relationship networks and each service aims to respond to the interests, needs, aspirations and choices of each individual.

Brendoncare Community Allotments is an ambitious project which aims to produce fantastic home grown delights, grown for the community by the community. All of our services are run by fantastic teams of volunteers and we’re currently looking for more people to get involved in your local area.

Who are you?

Brendoncare are looking for happy, enthusiastic individuals to help at our fantastic new community allotments. Ideally, you will be a team player, happy to get involved, and ready to make a difference! You might be green fingered or a total beginner, Brendoncare provides training and support throughout your volunteering.

What is required?

Volunteering at our community allotment will involve getting stuck in with some gardening, an average session might involve: assisting with preparing seedlings, looking after the plot (pruning, tidying, and watering), and safe light maintenance. We also host planning meetings which you will be encouraged to get involved in to help shape the direction of the allotment.

We ask for two satisfactory references and an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check from all our volunteers.

What are the benefits for you?

Our allotment helper role allows you to expand and develop at your own pace. We provide you with an induction, ongoing training, support and reimbursement of out of pocket/travel expenses.

This is a fantastic opportunity to give something back to the community and to experience the positive impact your volunteering can have to help improve the lives of older people in your area.

Skills

Volunteering with the community allotment can help you to gain new skills, spend more time outside and to breath life into a community project.

Ultimately we hope to allow our club members to get involved also.
