At our West Park site in Goole, we have a mini garden centre where volunteers plants seeds, grow plants and raise flowers to pot on into containers and hanging baskets – which are then sold to the public to raise funds for our charity.
This volunteering opportunity is suitable for anyone who has a love of gardening, pottering, planting seeds and nurturing plants.
You will be able to make new friends and become part of a friendly group whilst engaging in light activities.
All the staging is at waist height so if there are limitations on mobility, you are welcome to sit and work rather than stand. Also perfect for socialisation following an illness. This role is excellent for anyone that has a desire to get involved with our charity but who may find helping us to provide a garden maintenance service for our clients a struggle.
You are free to offer whatever time commitment you can – our organisation will be grateful to you for the time that you give.
We very much welcome donations of plants that you no longer want in your garden or are surplus to requirements, or ceramic outdoor or indoor plant pots / containers. A local collection service is available for large plants.
The garden centre is open to the public Monday to Thursday 10:00am – 3:30pm and Friday A.M. and situated just next door is our cafe.
