Volunteers at our Growing Ability projects are an invaluable source of support. Their commitment and enthusiasm has enabled our gardeners to do so much more.
Volunteering offers the opportunity to make a real difference: to develop new skills, build on existing experience and knowledge, and to reap the social benefits of meeting new people, making friends and getting to involved in the local community.
In 2014 Rachel, who has been a volunteer with Growing Gang and the Triangle Garden for many years, successfully applied for a paid position supporting one of our gardeners. She is also now the paid support worker at our new Wednesday sessions.
In 2015 Yolanda joined the Thursday afternoon Growing Ability group and has been a vital support. She has particularly made a difference in supporting two of our gardeners with their vegetable and flower growing. She is now also a member of our events committee and is also putting her previous experience to good use helping us draft fundraising bids.
If you would like to become a Growing Ability Project volunteer, please contact our Project Manager Liz McElroy.
